Brilliant to find so many people to talk to.
when I was 16/17 the doctor was standing at the other end of her office and noticed enlargement at the base of my neck where my thyroid gland is located so decided to send me for a blood test - TSH levels I believe. Tests came back as normal but she wanted to carry out testing every 6 months. Every time my results came in they were normal but I still had an enlargement at the base of my neck.
Over the 9 years I have suffered horrendously with various symptoms to the point of exhaustion.
Serious fatigue, dry skin, bad hair loss, memory fog, aches and pains all over, bought of rapid heart rate, pains in my neck, hoarse voice, persistent cough, stomach issues and many more.
I finally told my doctor that I have had enough and wanted to know my last TSH level results to which he said was slightly elevated and he decided to send me for an ultrasound. Roll forward to last Wednesday when I was sat having my ultrasound in the local hospital. I was surprised to hear that despite having an enlargement at the base of my neck my thyroid gland is of perfect size......but he found rather a large number of nodules/growths. Basically that's all that was said and I am now waiting for the results to come back to the GP by the time I have my appointment next week,
I am very concerned as i have limited information and would really appreciate to hear any of your experiences to provide some peace of mind.
