Briefly I have felt unwell for 3 months now and really at the end of my tether. My symptoms are tight feeling around neck, increased mucus, pain on swallowing on the right side and absolute exhaustion and lack of energy. My doctor suspected thyroid and I had scan revealing small nodule on lower right lobe of thyroid. It is benign. My blood levels 3 months again were normal. Chest xray normal. My thyroid consultant wants to see me in January to check the nodule but he thinks my symptoms are unrelated. I have been seen by ENT consultant who is puzzled but scoped my nose and wants me to take acid tablets incase it's reflux. It isn't. he also wants me to have barium swallow but I am reluctant because of the large dose of radiation on thyroid nodule area. Also I just know it 's my thyroid. I am not the same person that I was 3 months ago and all my discomfort is round the thyroid nodule area. Am I going mad? I don't want the barium swallow when I just know it's my thyroid. Is there something a doctor could give me to try to see if It helps and then I would know. I can't bear feeling like this much longer. Please help!
