Waiting to find out results of blood tests for anti-bodies. Had ultrasound of neck today and doctor said my thyroid was not normal - nodules, nothing cancerous looking, but abnormal and burnt out is what she said. Also said could very well be Hashimotos that is causing it. As I understand it, Hashimotos is an auto-immune problem. What does this mean for other things? If it is confirmed, should I be concerned about what the auto-immune attack might do to other glands/parts of my body? Is there anything in particular that I need to be asking my doctor about or anything I need to ask her to do?
