I am waiting to see the doc tomorrow for my test results (I know they indicate an overactive thyroid but don't no why) and then am being referred to an endocrinologist. However this morning I woke up (I don't really sleep !) and on the base of my neck from the middle of the thoard and extending about 4 inches to the back of the neck and is about 3/4 of an inch in width, I have a raised red welt that is very painful to the touch. It isn't so much a rash as just one solid red line. It looks like someone tried to strangle me on one side! Is this a weird thyroid symptom?
Your symptom sounds exactly what I am experiencing. It comes and goes for no reason I can determine. At this moment I have a larger welt than any others before, although there are a couple of small ones too. When I have someone look at them they say they look like scratches.
Did you ever find out what it was?
