So I went to my PCP and dumped the symptoms in his lap and he sent me in for an ultrasound of the thyroid and well as lab work. The labs on my thyroid came back fine but borderline for hyperthyroid yet still in “normal” range. I am overweight and have been for some time so not much concern there. The US however showed a 1.4cm nonspecific nodule in the right pole of my thyroid. When the doc told me of the findings I asked him if the nodule could be causing the symptoms I was having.
