I have been unable, despite extensive reading, to understand exactly what the above means!
I had a lump in my cheek and had an ultrasound, and then a biopsy last Thursday. It is not a blocked salivary gland as thought, it's a cyst or a tumour. I'll find out which next Wednesday.
The radiologist also asked to ultrasound my neck and took pictures of lumps in my thyroid, and told me I have or have had autoimmune thyroiditis. She asked if my neck had been tender. It hasn't.
BUT I have been very tired for a year, lost my outer eyebrows (although they are a bit better now) have nails that are ridged and brittle and break off along edges, foot pain, difficulty concentrating, constipation (despite eating a diet full of veg, fruit, wholemeal bread and drinking at least 3.5 litres a day) etc.
I put all these symptoms down to other causes - I am a type 1 diabetic.
I had bloods taken on Monday and was told today that they had tested my TSH and it was normal at 2.5.
What do I do now?
