I have just recently been diagnosed with thyroiditis by my PCP with unknown cause although my antithyroidglobuin was 2752 so she's leaning toward hashimoto's or pregnancy induced as I have a 15month old.
Anyway, 3 days ago I had a new symptom-it felt like a pill was stuck in my throat. Only occasionally painful upon swallowing. I had an appt with my PCP the day after it started so I mentioned it to her. I just had an ultrasound today of my thyroid.
Tonight I am utterly miserable. It HURTS!
The pain radiates between my shoulder blades and it hurts CONSTANTLY and much worse when I swallow.
I was told I wouldn't hear results from the ultrasound until Monday...
Is this just simply a part of thyroiditis?
I have my first endocrinologist appointment lined up for april 11th. Do I just suffer until then?View Thread
