I have had a multi-nodular goitre for just over 2 years. I've had ultrasounds and 2 FNA's which indicate it is not cancerous. I have a 3cm nodule on one lobe and lots of other smaller nodules but they have not changed in appearance or size over the 2 years. My blood results have been within range, usually my tsh is around 3.5 (0.5-5) and my T4 is around 10 (9-24). My tsh did creep up to 6.7 in may, my t4 was in range, the test was repeated last week and my t4 had come back down to 3.7. Since then end of feb this year my throat has felt very tight and uncomfortable. I had an ultrasound last week and the lady that did it said although there was no change in appearance she felt I should think about having my thyroid removed due to the pain. I had an appointment with neck-specialist this morning and he felt the pain may not actually be related to my thyroid might be due to a sinus problem ( i am quite "sinussy" and do have problems with a drip down the back of my throat) and he has referred me to an ENT specialist. He did say he would remove my thyroid if I wanted to go down that route but it wasn't his recommendation as he didn't feel it would help. Other than now waiting for my ENT appointment to come through I don't know what to do next. I have lots of symptoms which could be attributed to hypothyroidism and have been feeling rubbish for 4//5 years now but don't feel I am getting any answers from the medical profession. Any advice please?
