Question: I am 44, 140lbs/ 5'9", I have recently developed frequent skin irritations on my temples, upper arms, & deltoids. Upon seeing several doctors, an endocrinologist discovered nodules on my right thyroid gland which was biopsied (benign). I was not put on thyroid meds as my levels were considered normal. Now several months later, I awaken to an indention in my right shoulder muscle that is about the size & depth of a XXXXXXX thumb impression. When touched it feels sore like an injury but nothing has happened? I plan to go to a doctor but don't know which to see. I've been to my GP but she didn't seemed concerned, it has since grown deeper. Any advice? Thank you.

Hi welcome and thanks for writing in.
It looks like that your present complaints are not related to thyroid or previous skin lesions
I would like to know whether you had any trivial trauma to shoulder?
Such kind of depression may be due normal deltoid groove. It is possible that you have examined it for the first time . If you want to consult a doctor then it will be helpful to XXXXXXX orthopaedic surgeon. Exact nature and diagnosis will be possible after detailed clinical examination by expert.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have further concern please let me know.
Regards.

My mother is 89 and on hospice care for advanced A.D. she has developed, over past year, an indentation on the top of her skull running left to right about three inches back from the front of the scalp. She has several large nodules on her thyroid, but her endocrinologist declined to pursue with needle biopsy or surgery due to her age and advanced disease, A.D. what do you think could be the cause of the changes in the top of her skull, indentation. She also has had significant loss in brain mass in past 12 years per MRI studies ren years apart.

My psychiatrist added 25 mcg of liothyronine, I started taking it Thursday 3-19, to be increased to 50 mcg after one week to augment my depression that has been resistent to other antidepressants. I don t have enough energy to leave the sofa. I also have panic disorder. I have gained about 35 lbs. in about nine months. I m nervous after reading some of the reviews. Should I be. How long can I safely take this medication. Will my thyroid stop producing the harmone naturally if I stay on this medication? When I come off will my thyroid be normal? I have very high hopes that this will increase my metabolism and give me the energy I m lacking and aid in my depression. Thank you
