Pain Related To Thyroid Disease

I've been diagnosed hyperthyroid, I have a goiter right thyroid, I am in constant pain in my neck and back, I've been to three different doctors and still no relief.  I didn't even get a doctor to give me thyroid related tests until my neck swelled up!  I feel like everyone is minimizing my problem, and I'm at my witts end!  What do I do to speed up the treatment process.  I'm taking propylthiouracil 300 mg daily and it's not helping.

Do you have thyroid labs to post?  If so, please include reference ranges as they vary lab to lab.

How long have you been on PTU?  Have you had follow up blood work since starting it?
