But now i got up this morning and i lost my voice and i have bad neck in my left side and it is swollen a little i got that pain 2 days now ! Oh and i lose 4 pounds in 1 night ! Is this there something to worry ?

User :   the pain is in the pack of my neck and unter my left ear
Doctor :   Throat*
User :   i have a sore thraot
User :   but not a fiver
Doctor :   Ok, I would consider the reason for your voice problem is mainly due to sore throat and not related to the biopsy procedure
User :   it hurt when i swallow and give me a bit broblems to get air
User :   is it related to my thyroid ?
Doctor :   Thats right this symptoms may be due to reffered pain due to the puncture into the thyroid glans and this is self limiting
Doctor :   yes, it could be due to thyroid gland gland puncture , but not due to any hormonal and is merely a physical phenomenon
User :   ok but my thyroid is on the right side not left
Doctor :   need not worry , since the gland is supplied superficially by the nerve which does supply most of the throat you do feel the diffuse pain
User :   and i have the problem on the left side back in my neck and unter my left ear
Doctor :   also the symptoms could have been aggravated by the sorethroat you have
User :   oh ok thank you but i also feel a little warm what is iv i get a fieber ??
Doctor :   The fever could be straight attributed to the sore throat
Doctor :   The symptoms you have are self limiting , but you may need to take medication for the sore throat
User :   well i am not sick thats what i am saying my throat is sore from my thyroid when i swallow
User :   from the noudles i have
Doctor :   do wait and watch for another day , if the fever gets more along with the throat symptoms , it is then you may have to be put on antibiotics
Doctor :   the feeling of warmth could be a sign of mild fever
User :   ok well thank you but just how i say was by the docter and i am not sick ore have a cold
Doctor :   You my develop the secondary symptoms a little later after throat symptoms in case of sore throat
Doctor :   I understand your concern
Doctor :   need not worry , i say it is no where related to the physiology of the gland
User :   ok thank you
User :   for you help
Doctor :   You are welcome
Doctor :   Thanks for consulting me
