I am a 31 yr old male. I started having low grade fever and night sweats 6 weeks back. I had no other symptom and the primary dr. could not diagnose me with anything so sent me to an infectious disease specialist. He did a bunch of test for virus, infection and all came negative. This was week 3. I also started getting slight neck pain near the thyroid (but it wasn't a sore throat) which went away in 4-5 days. Also did CT scan of the whole body which returned a possible small nodule in the thyroid (which was confirmed with ultra sound. After week 5, the4 fever went away and I am feeling normal again. The dr also did a thyroid test in week 5 which showed high T4 (15.3) TSH (0.006) , Thyroid Peroxidase (TPO- Normal at 13) and High anti-thyroglobulin (93). Now i have an appointment with an endocrine specialist. The dr. are saying this is hyper thyroidism although I don't have may of the symptoms except I feel hungry every 3-4 hours. I don’t have a elevated heart rate or anxiety attacks.
Has anyone else have similar situation. Any ideas what’s happening to me?
