this condition can cause miscarriages, premature births, and intrauterine growth retardation for the baby if not taking proper treatment for it. You can also develop high blood pressure because of it.

I am 9 weeks post partum. I have had multinodular goiter prior to pregnancy and I went for an ultra sound yesterday and it showed hardly any normal tissue on left side. I had 2 biopsies prior to pregnancy and the result was negative. Should I be worried about anything serious? Is there a chance that things will calm down and it can be left alone?

I was diagnosed 3 years ago with a multinodule goiter, but now my endo is sending me to a surgeon because my thyroud has grown, isthmus 8mm up from 3, and I now have a new 3 mm hypoechoic nodule in th posterior aspect of the lower pole of the right lobe. he ordered the ct because I am having trouble swollowing, constantly sick and fatigue is worsening dispite levothyroxine. my wbc are high, neutrophils low and lymphocytes high, should i be concerned?

Hi, I just found out I have hypothyroidism with a multinodular goiter. I ve been having difficulty swallowing (choking on liquids) for a while now so they are doing a CT scan of my neck today to see if it has anything to do with the goiter. I m 25 years old and the goiter is not large enough to notice when you look at my neck...could it still be the cause of my dysphagia?

Hi, I have been experiencing swelling on my left shoulder (in the neck region) and there s what appears to be a swollen gland in my left neck. The headache is mostly on the right side of my head and breathing is sometimes correlated with irregular heartbeats. I am on HBP medications, but the docs have done tests (ultra sound, EGC, xrays, biopsy) for thyroid, but all are negative. What could these symptoms be and what are the possible treatments?

My husband is 3 months post op Thyroid Cancer. Thyroid was removed as well as 6 metastatic nodes. 148 mc Radioactive Iodine was given & I131 scan showed only residual tissue. He currently takes his synthroid 150 mg. But it has been ineffective. 6 weeks ago he had an onset of pain in tailbone. Which has progressed to severe pain & inability to stand or walk correctly. Along with this his RBC Hemocrit & Hemoglobin levels are low, but his Platelet function times are elevated. He has had several CBC W/DIFF labs. His PFT has been up to 206- 247 ranges & his PFT EPI up to 179. They are consistently high with the exception of 2 different times being normal out of 6 draws. His ENT just removed tonsils with bleeding complications. He believes something is wrong & is sending him to Hematology at Vanderbilt. My question is could the bone pain be related to his levels? Lukemia? Or is that not usual or is it two separate issues such as a blood disorder and possibly a discount issue?

Hello, I am trying to figure out why I ve been getting rashes on and off for the past couple of years whenever I go on vacation and get exposure to the sun and ocean. I have Addison s Disease and hypothyroidism and don t know if the bumpy clustery bilateral rash has to do with my autoimmune disorders. The rash goes away in a few days and is non-itchy but uncomfortable. It usually starts on the tops of my feet and spreads to my hands (in between fingers too)...right now it is on my thighs and hips.
