I have had many of the typical hypothyroid symptoms for years (fatigue, cold, dry skin, etc.). I was always told my TSH was normal therefore my thyroid function was normal. I noticed my neck enlarging over the past several years but just thought I was getting a fat neck due to some weight gain. My TSH labs have always been in the high normal range. I was finally officially diagnosed with a goiter (visible now) and have an US and Endo appt. coming up soon. Because of this site I asked my GP to do an antibody test and theTPO came back high 360 with normal being <120. My question is this. For about 3 years I have suffered from chronic sore throat, cough, and chest pain (like someone standing on my chest). I work with children and thought I was just always catching whatever germs were always going around. The chest pain I have had evaluated and everything comes back normal. I am wondering if these symptoms could be related to my thyroid? Has anyone else experienced this?
Iv a constant trobbing pain in my throat, don't know if I have hashimotos but waiting on test results to come back! I did get chest pain when I breath in but I dono why either. I am very symptomatic with a TSH of 6.5. I dono if this is any help but Id say it is down to the thyroid.... I just want to know how the he// to get over it and live a normal life! Do you suffer anxiety from the hashimotos??
I don't have high anxiety but I have always been somewhat of a worrier. I am getting frustrated because after all my cardio and GI tests were normal...everyone is telling me it must be stress. I am not a stressed out person...I am actually very mellow.
I personallt think its down to the thyroid! Im suffering bad with all sorts of symptoms, anxiety being the WORST! Id trade it for all the physical symptoms in the world!!! A thyroid means your immune system is low so you could get a cough or flu often!!!
