I have a Multinodular Goitre, diagnosed 10 years ago. It has not caused me any difficulty. 2 weeks ago it started becoming a little painful and I could feel a slight pressure on my trachea, directly behind the thyroid. I saw a local doctor (I am currently travelling in Vietnam) and they did an ultrasound. They said that the thyroid was not inflamed and there was no constriction of the trachea. But it appeared I had an infection as I had a temperature and my glands were inflamed. I was given antibiotics. A week into the treatment the fever has gone, the glands are back to normal and I am back to feeling a slight pressure on my trachea behind the thyroid.
I think I should probably get back to the UK and have it properly investigated, but I would like opinions on this please.
Also, I have insurance, so can anyone recommend any good private consultants in East London, Southend or Chelmsford please.
Many thanks in advance
