I am new here. Need some advice. My husband has been having pain in the throat, which seems to go up his ear and head. We went to the ENT specialist who asked for an ultrasound of the neck. This confirmed some thyroid nodules. And the one of the nodules was 1.2 cm and was irregular and hypoechoic. He then ordered an fcna on the right nodule. The result of which came back as lymphocytic thyroiditis. He then referred us to a thyroid surgeon as the pain continued for 10 days. The thyroid surgeon gave us anti inflammatory medication for 15 days. After which, the pain seemed to be gone but it has been reappeared again. I have started to take pain killers. My TSH, t3 and t4 are all normal. What could this be ? Need a second opinion as what more should tests are out there which can tell me what is causing the pain ? My doc says I will have to take thyroid medication soon for the rest of my life. But the pain is bothering me..Please advice.
