My thyroid is choking me today!

Sep 15, 2008 - 6 comments

I feel ok except my thyroid is choking me.  I am having the numbness again today in my face and I am convinced now that my thyroid swelling is swelling on or around a nerve.  I HATE MY THYROID.  I think I will be telling my doc in November that I want this thing out.

OH - and, I turned my head to the right today while kind of looking down and got a muscle spasm from my clavicle to my right cheek.  It was not a moving spasm (you know, twitching) it was like the muscle contracting, that did not let up for about a minute.

it can be nerve inflammation

Nerve inflammation?  That is very interesting.  What nerves are around there and what causes the inflammation?  Would that mean yet another (different) doctor or can my ENT see about that?

"Several times daily an individual will come into the office with a left arm tingling, or pain or tingling in the left chest.   Often the patient will be concerned about the heart. This discomfort  is most often due to a " pinched nerve" in the cervical spine where a disc is bulging onto the nerve root.  This can cause acute severe pain, or a chronic low grade intermittent gnawing pain, worse in the cold weather. The discomfort can be at the base of the neck, radiating up into the scalp, down the shoulder to the arm and fingers, into the top of the chest, the pectorals, into the angle of the shoulderblade, or under the arm and into the lower pectoral muscles.  "

I was thinking the same thing .. and that can really really hurt .. inflammation can do awfully painful things.   I am on Mobic anti-inflammatory for severe tibial tendonitis ... cannot go without it ... will they consider a Motrin type med maybe?  Worth asking.

OUCH and hope you feel better soon
