I've had these tests and they all come back normal. Rats. No luck so far. This stuff is such a mystery.
You could ask your doctor to do a thyroid ultra sound. That might give an idea of what's going on. My doctor said an ultra sound is a better choice than an MRI, and cheaper / faster too. Thyroid nodules are very common in people, and usually they are not a problem. But it is good to get them checked. If there is a nodule generally the doctor (usually an endocrinologist) will do a (FNA) fine needle aspiration. They take a biopsy by sticking a very fine needle into the nodule. Hashimoto's thyroiditis may wax and wane per what people say on this forum. Symptoms can come and go, including swelling and irritation in the throat.
Proverbs 25:16 "Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it."
Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.
Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, and hard work. have a good day! :-) Paul
