Maybe I shouldnt be worried about this since he could be wrong, but i went to my family doc this mornin because i swore i had a sore throat (it feels raw and hard to swallow, etc). He tells me no its not my throat, that my thyroids are swollen :blink: . So he gave me some dumb prescription for rinsing mouth or whatever, and wants me to go for bloodwork. Should i be concerned??

Are you sure he didn't mean tonsils?

...but get your bloods done anyway I think :)

Hope your throat feels better soon :)

Yes it can cause a swollen feeling, but I don't know about pain. If you get the tests get the whole panel including the thyroid peroxidase anitbodies.

What in the world is that??? All i know is he checked off TSH.

TSH is only one of the thyroid panel tests, and unfortunately is the one that many docs often use to make the treatment decision.

If your thyroid is swollen, I'd make sure you really have a sharp doc good in this area. Perhaps an endocrinologist?


4/2007 Positive IGA, TTG Enterolab results, with severe malabsorption: Two DQ2 celiac genes--highest possible risk.

gluten-free since 4/22/07; SF since 7/07; 3/08 & 7/08 high sugar levels in stool (i.e. cannot break down carbs) digestive enzymes for carbs didn't help; 7/18/08 started SCD as prescribed by my physician (MD).

10/2000 dx LYME disease; 2008 clinical dx CELIAC; Other: hypothyroid, allergies, dupuytrens, high mercury levels

Even if i did find one of those docs, it would take MONTHS to get in
