I have pain in thyroid gland after diagnosed with Chronic thyroiditis. Do i need medical attention ?

I was diagnosed with Hashimoto s and take Armour Thyroid. On 11/2009 I had a 3cm Hurthle cell neoplasm removed from the lower left portion of the gland (20%) and a lymph node removed, sliced through, no cancer . Now I am experiencing upper right side Throid pain, tender to the touch, slightly swollen lymph node and gland. Last couple of days waking up sweating around 2am, likely not unusual, since I am at that age. However, last I expreinced hot flashes was the 3cm turmor growth. I don t want to hit the panic button, and seem overly anxious. Should I go ahead and schedule an appointment? Today is the first day with tendorness. Or should I wait, see if it is a throat virus and wait a week or so?

Hello, I am diagnosed with chronic thyroiditis, subclinical hypothyroidism and chronic fatigue syndrome. My TSH is 7, thyroid gland produced enough hormones until now. Do I need to begin Levaxin or can try ayurvedic treatments. Did hear that they give good results. Thanks

A month or so ago I injured the left side of my inner thigh at work. I work for a medical supply company and a hospital bed frame that was intended for cleaning was leaning on a wall near an entry way to our bathroom. I opened the door as i came out my foot stepped on one of the corners of the foldable frame and it came forward from the wall and jabbed me in the crotch. That hurt but after a minute or so i was able to shake it off. As time goes on no more pain. I take thyroid medication and I was thinking that my thyroid is acting up which brought on the swollen gland and the pain again. My question now is what do i take over the counter? or would a heating pad help?
