was diagnosed with an under active thyroid in march but only recently found out i have hashimotos. non of the doctors ive seen in this time (at least 10 including a student) have examined me in the thyroid area. a doctor i saw in A and E said he coundnt see any lumps but he was standing a foot away from me at the time. is it necessary for this to be done or is it normally done when symptoms appear such as having difficulty swallowing?
