Question Thyroid Related??? Searching...

My most recent sympton seems to be a mild hoarseness that doesn't seem to go away and sometimes I feel like there is something in my throat when I'm swallowing. I woke up one morning about three months ago and my entire right side was hurting...breast, shoulder, arm, side, hip, and leg, prior to this I had been prescribed Celexa for anxiety, which I didn't respond well to....I went to the doctor and explained what happened. My breast hurt so bad I could hardly stand to touch it...I was sent for a mammogram...all clear. After a few days, the pain lessened a great deal...but my issue is, the pain is still there. It's very dull...but it's still there. I have gone to the doctor twice since then...even to a breast specialist...but no one has been able to offer me any answers. The area under my breast hurts as well...I'm dizzy, nauseous, and ALWAYS tired...oh, and I also had a feeling of fullness under my arm, but that went away and the doctor said that my nodes weren't swollen. Could the discomfort under my breast be my liver or gall bladder or possibly thyroid? Has anyone else experienced any of this

Re: Thyroid Related??? Searching...

The throat problem may be strep throat or something unrelated to a thyroid issue. In your visits to your doctor, have you and your doctor discussed being tested for a thyroid problem or other possible problems? You mention that you have anxiety and that you were prescribed medication for it; have you found out what is causing the anxiety? has the anxiety started because of the symptoms that you described or is there another reason? You should take comfort in that the pain has been slowly going away. If you focus on that, it will ease your concerns so you can control your anxiety. I am glad that you are working with your doctor to find a solution since pain can affect quality of life considerably. Your reaction to the anxiety medicine is normal in many, many people for the first few weeks. A good doctor will prescribe a benzo along with an anxiety medicine to help you cope with the initial side effects. The benzo itself may be enough to control the anxiety. As for the pain itself, was there any bruising with the pain? did it feel like a muscle pain or more like a nerve pain? were you prescribed any pain medicine or muscle relaxants to reduce the discomfort and did they help?
