I never had diagnosis except the time when I went for specialist for sore throat problem. The doctor didnt do ct or whatever test. Since that I never back to do check up because I think it's ok. I also never had test for thyroid, or tsh. So I totally no idea about my health.But im planning to do the blood test soon.
I suspected I have hyperthyroid because I have some of the symtoms such as insomnia,decreased heat tolerance,excessive sweating,fatigue. but I don have problem like hair loss or staring gaze. So Im really not sure.
i used to be like you. i worried about all sorts of health problems. it's hard to get past, but you have to get your mind on other things. divert your attention. don't look up health problems on the internet...you'll find that you have symptoms of everything. you have to try to get over the what if because there are an infinite amount of what ifs. you'll drive yourself nuts.
do you have thyroid issues? hyper? hypo? have you been clinically diagnosed? high or low tsh?
get a general physical done...blood work and talk to the doc about the lymph nodes and ct with contrast. it'll give you some relief. but afterwards, you have to divert yourself. don't obsess on your health or other what ifs, find something constructive to occupy your time. read a book, garden, draw/paint, exercise, etc.
Thanks for your replied.
I can never relax. I'm such a hypochondriac. I over worry for my health. I never had blood test and Im planning to do it. But I'm worry if I found I have any diseases. I wish I have someone to talk to,not only for this thyroid problem but also my hypochondria. Im really worry , I feeling like crying. I hope Im not getting throat cancer. I dont want to suffer from any illness.
try to relax. we all have swollen neck lymph nodes. that's the most common place for people to have them. i have them.
go to the doc and express your concerns about the nodes. ask if they could do a ct with constrast to evaluate the nodes. that will show any abnormal nodes.
