My wife recently took up running, and after a few months she had a cold with a chest infection/cough, it went away and some weeks later she started to get a cough when she when she would start running, it kept on being a nuisance so went to the doctor's who found a swelling in her neck unbeknown to my wife, anyway an ultrasound scan and endocrinologist visit has taken place and tests are still ongoing. The thyroid still seems to be working OK, but is so enlarged it's pushing over her windpipe.
She's been told that the nodule is the size of a Satsuma and may have been growing for up to 30 years, but the coughing may not be linked to the enlarged thyroid, which could be due to running induced asthma. Has anyone one else had this complaint come on? And what they had done about it?
