I have a question that you may be able to help me with! I am attempting to resolve this issue with my PCP but he is hesitant to order the tests?
4 Yrs ago they found that i havea goiter on my thyroid, i have ultrasounds every 6 mths to monitor its size, i have multiple nodulars, and multiple cysts........ I have an elevated EOS @ 11.9, they ran a Nuclear Test to R/O cold or warm cells in the thyroid which came back negative so that would r/o CA of the thyroid correct?
Well have a OA displacement? my pcp attempted to manipulate it with a simple "rotation" my neck cracked and it felt better for about 4 days, since then i have had a headache that wont resolve with tylenol or motrin.........i saw him today and he says my Nerve in the occipital is pinched causing the headaches? I pressured him to order an MRI of the head since i havent ever had headaches in my life so i am concerned that the elevated labs and such is caused by a pituitary issue, Non functioning tumor? He didnt believe so but said " i havent had time to research it">? hmmm more pills ( i hate pills) so what do you think? could they all be related? can the pressure in my neck be caused by the thyroid? possible growth? its been 2 mths since the nuculear study and i have headaches for about the same? or am i just grasping at straws? I am tired of paying $80/mth for office visits to hear "take this and get these labs done" and still nothing is resolved!
Can you give me any suggestions??
Thyca is not common - but scans and MRI will not rule out the cancer. A biopsy is really they only way to tell for sure - and that sometimes can be missed.
It sounds to be like you may have when you cracked your neck inflammed some tissues or muscles. I see a chiro at times and if I crack the wrong way I do have a constant headache until another adjustment corrects the issue.
A goiter when inflammed can give our discomfort in your neck. I do not know much about that - but when I feel inflammed in the front of my throat - I am uncomfortable.
Hopefully someone will also post more here. I hope this resolves for you
