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?

I am 26 years old. Female. & have a couple concerns. Fr a little while now I have been extremely tired. Several months. With that I have EXTREME constipation like 10-20 days with no BM. Also I have gained about thirty pounds in a matter of two months and cannot seem to get it off. I have dark circles under my eyes as well. I have not had a cycle in over two months. I am not pregnant. I had blood work down to look at my thyroid and the TSH was 1.82. My primary said that was normal. My WBC was 4.3 and the RDW was 11.4%. Also my ast 33 and alt 32. I am really tired of being so tired. I generally run a high pulse in the 100s. Can sleep all day. Lately I have developed headaches in the evenings. Three years ago I had a child via cesarian because my blood pressure was too high (don t know I that s relevant)! I just want some help and my doctor doesn t seem to care. Also I supposively have adult ADD. Which I guess contributes to my forgetfulness which is worse as well. Thank you!(also heart disease, cancer, hypertension, thyroid disorders. Are in family hx)

Thanks!I am very tired today and feel like I would like to go to bed....which I never nap in the day. I take blood pressure meds and just took my blood pressure. Not bad. 103/62 with a 65 pulse. I have my own wrist gauge, and an excellent blood pressure program which I log my pressure maybe every other day or so. Gives my doc wonderful readings over a month, 6 months, etc. if he needs them. I have had the band calibrated. Why am I soo tired. I have a cat that is 22 and has hyper-thyroid and that depresses me badly.
