multinodular goiter
Hello, I am a 42 year old woman that has been struggling with discomfort in the neck since last December of 2009, Lately it has become unbearable. I feel swelling in the neck, and feel like food gets stuck in my throat, I am very umcomfortable because of this and I still have to wait til July 19 to see a specialist. Is there anything I can take to relieve this until I see my doctor. I did a scan and they told me I have a goiter with multinodular cells and I have hyperthyroid, my TSH IS 7.37 AND i AM TAKING SYNTROID, .037 MG. CAN ANYONE GIVE ME SOME MEDICAL ADVICE TIL I SEE MY SPECIALIST. Thank you

The TSH is high - your doctor will likely increase your synthroid (? currently 137mcg) - usually to the next dose up.  Do not change your dose w/o discussing with your doctor.

Would also discuss with your doctor your neck symptoms - -these may not change with adjusting your synthroid dose.  May be helpful to discuss with an ENT specialist if the cause for the pain is unclear.
