Hypothyroid, have consistent swollen knots on the base of head, near collar bone, behind ear, tremors in hand. Cause?

I am hypo thyroid and about 3 months ago the right side of my thyroid was swollen and hurt. It went down after 3 days. During this time I noticed a knot at the base of my head (pea sized) and one near my collar bone and one behind my left ear... I brushed it off... But they are there three months later and whatever is at the very top of my neck almost under the jaw is slightly swollen. A few days ago my right hand started shaking like crazy and I found two pea size knots in my forearm and a quarter size mass in the crease of that elbow .... Any suggestions?

Thanks for writing to us.
The swollen knots that you have noticed at different parts of your body can be swollen lymph nodes. This needs an FNAC for proper diagnosis.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
