Pain on jaw, throat, ears and hoarseness. Right thyroid removed, high lupus level. CAT scan done. What to do?

I have been feeling lots of pain on my jaw, throat , ears, and horseness, for over 3 months. I had my right tyroide removed 3 weeks ago 6/14, and the results was hashimoto dieses. I still feel all the symptoms and it is getting worse. I went to my primary doctor last week, we did tons of test, she called me today and said they all came back fine, except lupus was 11 and the normal level is 0-9, but she didn t seem to be to concern with that. I also went to a neurologist last week and did more tests, including cat scam on my neck and head. no results yet. please help.

You might have reflux disease ie the reflux of acidic contents in the food pipe from the stomach which causes irritation and pains.
You should also get your calcium checked.
In thyroid disorders the muscles at the lower end of food pipe which prevents reflux might get weakened and so causes reflux.
You need to consult your doctor and take medications for the antacids and antireflux medicines like domperidone etc and other prokinetic medicines .
All this after a local inflammtory cause is ruled out which i suppose would have been ruled out , as you had a surgery.
In doubt do reply.
