Does anyone have info or advice on symptoms of enlarged thyroid (goiter) associated with Hashis?
I had an ultrasound scan a couple of months ago which didn't show any lumps so considered not a problem. One GP says it will never shrink and another says it may when levels improve.
I'm currently on 100mcg Levothyroxine and being reviewed regularly until TSH levels improve (these have reduced from 44 to 8 over last 5 months).
I am getting breathing problems that are not alleviated with usual asthma inhalers and although reasonably fit as a rule, I'm finding walking uphill exhausts me quickly and breathing problems occur also when at rest (even woke at 3am with difficulty breathing last night). I have aching in my throat and wonder if these problems are due to constriction because of the enlarged thyroid gland?
