You seem to have two distinct conditions.
One, thyroid swelling with normal thyroid functions. This could be a colloid goitre or nodule. You must get an FNAC of the thyroid swelling to ensure that it is benign.

Second ks the musculoskeletal pains. The back pains would be more related to disc diseases or the muscular spasm or facet joint involvement. Get an MRI of the spine which would clarify. Its needed as you said its been there for sometime and it is a disaster.

The bony arm pain is unlikely to be related to thyroid swelling.
Try some analgesics for few days. If it does not help, then you can consult you doctor.

Hope this answers your concern.

Dear Polly, do get back if you need any further information.
