The continuing saga of my thyroid problem!!!!......... Well, I'm glad to say that finally I am feeling a little better. Still have the associated aches and pains but my consultant started me on medication last week, Carbimazole! I can't say that it's made a difference, it's such a low dose, 5mg once per day and anyway, after only a week, probably hasn't had time to make much of a difference to my symptoms. But today, I was booked in for a FNA and the doctor managed to drain quite a lot of fluid from my goitre. He said that I must have had a small haemorrhage because there was quite a lot of congealed blood which hadn't been absorbed back into my body, but he did manage to get some of it out so, I'm not sure if it's just my imagination but my goitre definitely feels smaller and there is definitely less pressure on my windpipe! I'm still pretty sore but the relief is very welcome and seems to be at least one less distressing symptom to worry about! My next appointment isn't until July, when I am due to see a surgeon who no doubt will advise on the next step. Just wondered if anyone else has experienced relief after FNA?
