Scared - 2 suspicious nodules

I swear my health was great until I got on thyroid meds.

I have tested + for Lyme and hasimotos. My hasimotos isn’t bad yet.

I had swollen lymph nodes from Lyme for a year. At least I think it’s from Lyme. Infectious disease dr told me my carotid artery is the lump I am feeling now. Why is there a lump on my carotid artery? No dr seems to be able to answer this question.

I had an ultra sound on the thyroid and neck. Of course they find nodules and 2 are suspicious and I need to have them biopsied.

I swear the meds did this. My thyroid was not bad. I only got on meds because it was a little low and I was going thru invitro.

Now I am scared to death. I have to wait 2 months to get into a specialist at Cleveland Clinic. So tired of worrying about my health.

Thyroid medication does not cause thyroid nodules and thyroid nodules don't usually cause low thyroid levels. Nodules are just clumps of cells. Most adults develop one or two nodules. 95% of thyroid nodules are benign so try not to worry.
