Curious..About Thyroid Pain

Just a question. Has anyone with a cyst or goiter ever experienced any sharp shooting pains in the region?
I don't get it often now, but for about a year prior to the lump showing up, I would get these pains that felt like a sharp hot needle sensation shoot up the side of my neck that my lump is on. They were the kind that you instantly took note of it, almost like something bit you.

Re: Curious..About Thyroid Pain

Hello Marsv63

I hear you. I too get the fatigue, I usually call it the 3 o'clock nod. The numness of my arms when i lay down, especially on one side, so I roll over n shake(feel like a dog)lol. The most disturbing being one day I'm ice cold, can't get warm enough, the next day so warm my hands are swollen,eyes feel gritty by the end of the day, like I've been out in the sun n wind all day.
The worst is waking each morning and feeling like I'm hung over, body aches, hard to get awake and focused. Some days I'm fine, then whammo I feel as though I'm getting the flu with body aches all over, a few hours apss and it's gone. Maybe some of this is being 40, but the sudden onset of everything has me wondering what is truly going on.
"I shall be healthy again"!!!

Re: Curious..About Thyroid Pain

Hi bwwcdnmom. All of the things you mention are symptoms of hypothyroidism. Make sure you write them all down and bring your list of symptoms to your doctor's visit. They will improve when your thyroid levels are balanced.

In the meantime, you may want to try keeping high protein snacks with you (like almonds or meat/fish jerky) for that fatigue time at 3:00-4:00p. Sugar (though you may crave it) absolutely won't help and neither will caffeine -- both will make you crash and be even more tired within an hour after you've had them. But a small handful of nuts can keep you going for a while.

Hope that doctor's appointment comes soon. Hang in there.

Re: Curious..About Thyroid Pain

Hi ArtfulD

Thank you for the tip, I will try that. I've been spreading out my lunch from 11:00 am - 1 pm eating portions at work during the 2 hours.
Interesting you think my symptoms are hypo. My TSH tends to be low .248 - .412, and my co workers call me hyper(go, go, go). Why can't we be like these new cars? Take us to the shop...hook you up, then a computer tells you all the stats and what isn't working, and what needs to be fixed. Too easy I guess.
Laughing.....thanks again ArtfulD
