OK, ive had symptom upon symptom of a thyroid disorder. Raspy voice, enlarged thyroid,Memory loss, mood swings, horrific periods, fatigue, muscle/ joint pain (especially in back) no sex drive to speak of, arthritic bone spur in knee. Urticaria, and now, my eyeballs are swollen! the opthamologist said its usually found with people who have an autoimmune disorder...ya, i know. All blood tests normal...so after pushing my dr, i had an ultrasound that revealed 1-2mm nodules on my right lobe and one 3mm complex nodule on my left lobe....yet everything I read says most nodules are found by accident...am i the only one that had symptoms BEFORE any nodules were found? My dr. says not to worry becasue my blood tests are fine but IM WORRIED!! My body has been falling apart for years! Anyone else experience this?
Yes!! I feel you and we are the same age my hair was falling out my back ached terribly the mood swings had my husband going crazy and my period WOW I was wishing for a hysterectomy! My nodule and thyroid problems were found by accident. I went in to the dr because I had a UTI and they did blood work before my PAP. I am now scheduled to go for a biopsy. I am on Levo pills 75mg and things have not improved much!
