  • I have lumpiness in my throat. I also have neck joint problems.

    If this is a new symptom for you then I would see the doctor.

    Have you ever had an Ultrasound scan of your Thyroid? If not maybe you could ask GP to send you for the scan.

  • Thanks Mary yes its new I've been noticing my Adams Apple for a little while now seems silly but don't remember seeing it before a few months ago brain fog ? But the tenderness is new just these last few days I've never had a ultrasound or scan of my throat so think I will check with the doctors if I can get an appointment it's about 3 weeks wait here. Could it be a flare ?

  • As our antibodies increase to fight a virus or other infection it follows that the attack on our Thyroid is greater. But if you haven't experienced this before then I would see GP. I don't think you should have to wait three weeks for an appointment. If you are concerned about it can't you request a same day appointment?

  • If you can't get appointment ask for phone call back from Doctor. When I asked for my scan I got appointment through from radiology fairly quickly.

  • Sorry Mary for late reply no don't think I'd get a same day appointment it wouldn't be classed as urgent but will ask for phone appointment if can't get a face to face one ,thank you
