Just thought I'd ask for a bit more advice as I'm wondering if anyone else is having same problems as me. I'm a bit out of my depth to be honest, I've written several blogs about my thyroid problems but I don't feel like I'm getting anywhere with doctors! I was diagnosed with mild hyperthyroidism a year ago even though ALL of my symptoms pointed to me being hypo. The fact that they said my condition was only mild completely astounded me because I had days where I felt so ill I was actually afraid! My endocrine doctor said I had multi nodules and a hot nodule to my thyroid gland (I hope I'm explaining this correctly and I'm making sense) I was told that the treatment for this was 5mg of Carbimazole daily for a year and that usually sorts the problem out.
I had an FNA about 9 months ago, my goitre felt so much better afterwards, there was less pressure in my neck and I no longer felt like I wanted to cough something up but when I went back for the results, the hospital said they hadn't got enough "material" to analyse and wanted to repeat the FNA in 6 months, so 3 months ago I went back to have the procedure again but the consultant decided not to do it because during the ultrasound scan it was discovered that the hot nodule had "collapsed in on itself" and was shrinking?
I have been suffering from really bad neck pain recently, not in just one place but several, especially around my collar bone and I once again feel like I want to cough mucus up ( sorry for being so graphic) I'm back at the hospital again at the end of the month and I'm just hoping that this time my doctor will actually LISTEN to me because these neck pains just can't be right! Has anyone else had similar symptoms?
