Sounds like thyroiditis causing transient hyperthyroidism and inflammatory changes on ultrasound.  the 1.2 cm nodule should be followed with repeat ultrasound in 3-6 months to confirm it is inflammation only and does not need FNA biopsy.

You having night sweats too? What do they say about that? I just had blood work done and changes in my free T4 but went down.  My TSH was 0.57 down from 1.36 6 mos ago. I e-mailed my doctor and she said they are in normal range
I have to go for  a third ultrasound and probable third biopsy on thyroid nodules.  She insists none of this is related to my chronic dry mouth and throat and now chronic stomach problems and nausea and I mention the sweating to my doctors, they do blood work and don't diagnose anything.  I went thru menopause years ago. Now, I wake up every night once or twice sweating and with an upset stomach before I even get out of bed.
