Thyroiditis help

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hello all. So after 3 mos of suffering from panic and anxiety attacks and thinking my death is imminent, I finally had my US of my neck and they found that I have Thyroiditis. I was so scared that I made another appt after the scan and saw the go who made me feel better by telling me it isn't cancer, however they still have to do more blood tests etc to further investigate and find out which kind I have, e.g hyper/hypo.

My question is if anyone else out there has this and if so what are they symptoms you have and did they get better with treatment? I am nervous because I have done a lot of forum reading and many people say their head pressure is still unrelenting, which is my worst symptom and it is driving me mad! It first started on the left side of my neck and the moved to the back of the left side of my head, temples and left war area. What it feels like is a lot of pressure, and almost like that area is just clogged up and it is driving me INSANE! Has anyone else experienced this? I just want it to go away I am so sick of it! Any light you could shed on this would be much appreciated.

Hope everyone is well and having a less anxious start to 2015 : )

    Hi. I have Hashimoto's thyroiditis. I was diagnosed about three years ago now. I am in much better health that I was back then but it did take a while to get sorted.

    Your lymphatic system runs through your whole body but when it gets sluggish it backs up in your head which feels like sinus pressure. Alot of drugs can cause this like a past broken nose or some underlying health problem
