pain around thyroid, but no swelling, confused about symptoms
So my blood tests have come back fluctuating over the past year from mild hyper to hypothyroidism. I spent the past year also getting over severe anxiety issues that seemed to have been caused from medication reactions, but as of now also could have been from thyroid issues in addition. I have scheduled an ultra sound and will see an endocrinologist in a few weeks, I am still confused about pinpointing my problem, anyone with feedback? Here are the symptoms from my symptom journal:
#1 dry/tender/sore at the base of the neck exactly where thyroid is, constantly. Often times during the day after I am awake and out of bed pain will start, this has begun in the past week. It will get severe sometimes, but there is no visible swelling or lump that I or the doctor could feel. Pain will also spread to my head.
#2 some weeks I am tired and depressed, others I am anxious and insomniac.
#3 mild choking feeling in my throat
#4 voice cracks
#5 vision hasn't been great, seems to have gotten blurred/double vision.
#6 odd sensation (usually the weeks when I have anxiety) of a pulsation in the back/lower part of my head, a slight "jolt" or "buzz" feeling.
Other than that, my breathing is fine, appetite is fine but I haven't been able to gain weight. vitals are fine, antibodies are fine from further thyroid blood tests, heart rate and BP is good... this def seems to be thyroid related, any one have feedback? I don't often read about severe pain with no swelling.. maybe a hidden nodule?
Oh I am 29 year old caucasian male.
