Hello. I am new to this forum and I need some advice please. About 3 years ago, my Dr. found a goiter on one side of my thyroid and a nodule on the other side. I don't remember what size they measured, however my Dr. said that they were small enough to just monitor. I haven't had them scanned again in almost two years. About a month ago, I noticed that my thyroid felt very enlarged. I've been having some trouble with chest pain and a little bit of trouble with swallowing. My family physician checked my thyroid levels and they came back normal. I am taking something for anxiety, however I still feel tired and anxious most of the time. I am scheduled to see an endocronologist in about a month. I was just wondering if anyone had experienced these symptoms with their thyroid levels being normal? Any advice or support would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
I have had an enlarged thyroid for 2.5 years, all thyroid blood test were normal, biopsy returned benign, endoscopy normal, etc.... I've taken every test. For the course of the 2.5 years, I complained of symptoms related to thyroid, but nothing was ever revealed, well Jan 14th this year, I had a thyroid uptake scan, that revealed, I am extremely hyperthyroid, and thyroid labs the day before returned normal.
So yes, although particular test may not show any conditions, symptoms can develop over a course of time.
And yes, I experienced chest pains, as well as swallowing difficulty.
