Have you had any thyroid tests done recently?  If you could post a current TSH, Free T3 and Free T4, that would help members comment more fully on your situation.

Do you know if you have Hashimoto's or not?  

There could be something else causing the lymph nodes to swell.

Doctors won't remove your thyroid just because you are hypo.  It's not unmanageable, you just have to learn what needs to be done, then go about doing it.  Even if you had your thyroid removed, you would have to take medication to replace the hormones your thyroid should be producing, because you'll die without them.

What are the actual levels of your Free T3, Free T4, TSH, along with the reference ranges stated on your lab report.  What tests were done to diagnose Hashimoto's?  

Yes, thyroid issues can mess up your menstrual cycle AND cause ringing in the ears.  Sex hormones, which control your menstrual cycle, and thyroid hormones are both part of the endocrine system; these hormones all need to be in sync with each other in order for things to work right......
