Brief Answer:
The pain at the leg is an emergency.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thank you for asking!
I have gone carefully through your concern.

As you described there are some problems to be treated.
First of all the the pain and paralysis of the leg needs a prompt evaluation, it may be due to a thrombosis of the deep veins or due to arterial damages caused by Diabetes.
So i would suggest to go to ER.
Diabetes and Hypertension, of course should be taken under control, so treatment should not be delayed.
Regarding to the thyroid nodule, if it is increased lately, your treating physician may suggest a FNA (citology to exclude malignancy).
Hope i have been helpful.

Wish you good health.
Kind regards,

I am a 58 year old female. My blood pressure is usually 120/80. I went for an appointment for a thyroid biopsy and it shot up to 200/100. When the doctor determined by the ultrasound I didn't need the biopsy, it began to lower--around 143/90 when i left? Should I be concerned?

Hi. i am 33 year old female, had my last baby about a yr. ago. Have had some issues since shortly after. 1st i was having dizziness. had a thyroid test and was normal with tsh being 1.3. Over the last 6 months have developed increased anxiety that seems cyclical in nature. I began seeing a new dr. and she retested my thyroid. tsh was 5.3 and free t4 was wnl. I have tried some ssri's without total relief and am thinking now this has to due with my thyroid, although i really thought i had symptoms of overactive thyroid such as anxiety, breathlessness, rapid hr, things like that. can i have these symptoms with hypothyroid. also my dr. started me on the bcp to ?? regulate hormones. Any advice or thoughts??
