Hey everyone, I'm pretty new here. I had posted a couple months ago because my hair had been falling out, I suspected a thyroid issue for many reasons but all my lab work came back normal.
Here I am 2 months later and I went to a new primary care practitioner because I had a sore throat with a lump on my neck that I knew wasn't my lymph nodes. Surprise surprise, it's my thyroid! The lump is quite painful to the touch. I am waiting on a call from the hospital to schedule an ultra sound and I had lab work done today, I may not have the ultrasound appointment or the lab results for a few to several days and am wondering if anyone has had a painful lump and how it turned out. My doctor "suspects" Hashimoto's but was wary to commit to a diagnosis before the ultrasound and lab results are in. The ultrasound is to see if there's a nodule as he didn't palpitate much because of the pain.
Thanks for your time!
