Normal results, nodule on thyroid

Hi, I'm 20 years old and I've been having ongoing health issues for like the past 2 years. Doctors cannot diagnose me and I'm stuck. I've got multiple symptoms, but my main ones are hot flashes, sweating, tremors. They don't happen all the time, but they occur randomly. I've also had swollen lymph nodes in my neck for over a year, possibly more.

So, I initially had my ultrasound scan because of a lymph node that occurred in my neck, but they also found a nodule which they said is possibly a cyst (along with multiple swollen lymph nodes in my neck). However, I've had my blood work done multiple times and they always come back normal for everything - including thyroid. I recently went to the hospital due to breathing issues and chest tightness, also a fast heart rate of 130 for like 2-3 hours. This isnt the first time it had occured, but is nor frequent. They repeated the blood work because the doctor informed me i am showing all the signs of thyroid issues. However, everything was clear.

I also have a feeling of a lump in my throat. It's difficult to explain, but it's like a sensation of a lump. The doctor said that's also a symptom, but it doesn't explain anything. Thyroid issues have completely been ruled out now, so if I'm honest I'm just searching for an answer. I feel like if I look between the lines, maybe I'll find an answer. After all this time trying to figure out what is wrong, I just find myself on forum after forum. My question is, did anyone maybe get mismisdiagnosed (unlikely, I know) or have a similar issue to mine? And maybe have an answer? Any help will mean a lot. Thanks

It's not in the least unlikely to get a misdiagnosis where thyroid is concerned - usually with them saying you don't have a problem when you do! But, we can't know without seeing the blood work. Do you have a copy of the tests done on your thyroid? It could be that the doctor didn't understand the results, or that they didn't do all the right tests.

For full thyroid testing you need:

TSH

FT4

FT3

TPO antibodies

Tg antibodies

vit D

vit B12

folate

ferritin

It's very doubtful that your doctor did all those, and the missing tests might just hold the clue to your problems. So, post what you've got - if you've got anything - and let's have a look. If you don't have your results, ask for a print-out. If you live in the UK, it's your legal right to have one. :)
