My GP referred me to a head and neck consultant because of a pain in my neck and jaw and I then had an MRI scan followed by an ultrasound sound scan, which consultant had fast tracked. The radiologist said there was no malignancy but that I had multiple thyroid nodules and one which went down behind my collarbone. I am 80 and feel terrible; piling weight on despite eating only twice a day and then only frugally. My hair has become thin and my eyebrows have almost disappeared. However, over a period of years my thyroid blood tests have come back either borderline high or normal so no action has been taken. Some ten years ago I did see an endocrinologist but he did nothing. My new consultant told me that my readings were underactive so I don't know where I am. It was only after changing GP practice that further investigations were ordered. This head and neck man has done more than anyone in the past and I am due to see him again next month. meanwhile, I don't know what to think. Am I hypo or hyper and why do the results seem to change? Any advice would be much appreciated.
