Hi everyone just a quick question. I do have Graves and I have a goiter. My question is will the goiter always flex in size? Because some days I feel it some days I don't.its still visible though. Even if your thyroid levels goes into remission or not?
I do have hyperthyroisdism as of right now due to the graves. I thought it is common to have a goiter if the person is under the age of 40. actually if the person is under the age of 40 the person with graves will have a goiter. I was just wondering if the goiter will always be there even in remission. If it is still present in remission will it still flex in size?
When I was 23, I developed graves/hyper/goiter. The only reason I went to the doctor was due to my neck enlarging (very visible on me-lineman's neck @ 88 lbs). I did have other symptoms but it was not until my neck enlarged that they figured out it was thyroid related.
The only thing I remotely remember was having the uptake scan, ( I think I had to drink something & come back for another scan). Once I went back for the second scan I was immediately admitted in hospital, apparently I was in a thyroid storm & didn't even know it. All history from there. Did have a RAI & TT, all better now.
