As far as a good thyroid doctor, I don't have any recommendations based on member's personal experience, but you might have a look at this listing of Top Thyroid doctors in Texas. There is one shown for El Paso that, based on patient feedback, sounds like the type you need. http://www.thyroid-info.com/topdrs/texas.
But it is far easier for me to put my hands in cool water than for you to stop and stand in a bucket! LOL I do feel for you. I had the swollen feet/ankles in pregnancy with number 2, over due by 14 days and in the height of summer! Be happy!
Some of the problems with papillary are that there can be multiple micro-cancers in the remaining thyroid tissue and no surgeon, no matter how good, can remove all the thyroid tissue during surgery. It's too wrapped around the nerves and vascular structures so if cancer is found then RAI is usually indicated to destroy all remaining thyroid tissue. Yeah, this site is great! Wish I would have known about it when I was having my surgery.
I had Hashimoto's and had to have my thyroid and part of my parathyroid removed (over 3 years ago) and have been in rather good health ever since. The improvement was dramatic and immediate. Only just recently (last 3 months) have my levels (TSH and free T3 & T4) acted up a bit but I think that this will resolve itself shortly. You might want to consider seeing an endocrinologist. They will conduct a few additional tests (sestamibi scan, ultrasound, etc.
My throat has also been feeling tight and a bit more swollen in the thyroid area so I thought it was time to be persistent with my doctor. He was very reluctant but believed that it might help considering my "hypothyroid-like" symptoms are still with me after a year since I started seeing him. He started me on 15mg and in a couple of days I can move up to 30mg and then move up again if I don't feel a difference.
i have swollen legs and hands almost daily and my new doctor says she is surprised I don't have heart problems. what's up what that??? i have gained a lot of weight and am about 79 lbs overweight now. My blood pressure seems to be higher than it should be on a somewhat regular basis, but not often enough to be deemed as hypertensive. if i lose a ton of weight can i reverse any/all problems?
My acupuncturist put needles in the outside of my ear and that seemed to eliminate the pain as long as the needles were in place.
I can't believe I found this site. 2 and half years ago I looked frantically for information about living with out a thyroid. I had Hashimotos(sp) and 7 nodules that were growing, after needle asperation it was determined that they were suspicious. I was reluctant to have my thyroid removed even though I had lived through years of hell with it disfunctioning. I was so afraid of cancer and went forward with the surgery.
I walk at least 30 minutes a day and I am fit. However, I've gone up 8 sizes in 10 years with a thyroid problem and taking steroids for asthma. Don't know if this has anything to do with my leg problems or not. My legs were bright red and itchy until I started taking the natural herbs. My primary thinks the redness and the edema is "normal" for me. I'm on a low-salt diet, which has done nothing or very little for the swelling. Should I find a new doctor? What should I do?
I had a lot of reflux (and still have some) as well as trouble swallowing- especially the calcium horse pills- after I had my thyroidectomy. It has improved a lot. I also had an uncomfortable tighness across my neck mostly toward the end of the day which I notice less and less. My surgery was June 24th. Good luck, I think time will be the biggest help.
I have this idea in my head that I will trap it in my fat, and then burn it off after I go back on my synthroid. OK well, by dinner, I am in PAIN!! My elbow, has a pain the radiates from the joint to the bone into my wrist and out my fingers. If I were a wizard (yes, okkkkkk... Sorceress since wizards are male *rolls eyes*). Again, If I were some kind of caster magical person, I could shoot you with lightening bolts!
Usually, I try to keep myself in the dark when that happened before, but now, I'm a freshman in college with essays and homework which demand light and the computer. I usually dull the screen, but lately, it has not been helping. Just recently, the eye pain has been combined with a dull pain behind my ears (both), my left temple, and down the left side of my neck.
Anxiety can be caused by hyperthyroidism (or too high of a dosage of thyroid meds), however, depression is very common with hypothyroidism. I have a background in mental health, as well as being a person who had hyperthyroidism until my radioactive iodine treatment, which then (of course) made me hypo.
I have swollen eye lids in the morning. I 've tried warm compresses and restasis but this doesn't seem to help. I am a contact lens wearer.
My symptoms are very similar to yours except - only one inner labia is swollen - VERY swollen, and is itching/burning only in the area near the clitoris (which is not infected at all) The rest of the inner labia (only the one side mind you) is swollen but is not sore at all...just the opposite, it feels almost numb. Let me tell you that the one sensitive area is raw nerves throbing with every heartbeat. This has happened a few times in the past.
(As you might know, that has no added iodine, and neither does the salt in processed foods. In fact, there has been an increase in babies born with thyroid problems since sea salt became popular and mothers were misled that 'natural' is always better.) Anyway, since giving iodine worked (and since she received no treatment for autoimmune thyroiditis), we can assume the goiter arose from thyroid deficiency. The thyroid does not always go down completely after that, btw.
I had the right side of my thyroid removed in July of 2010. I had a benign tumor. Three days after surgery, I experienced stroke like syptoms. They did a MRI when I first started having these symptoms and discovered gray matter on my brain. The blood tests showed my liver enzymes and ammonia level were elevated. (They were normal before surgery.) They told me my slurred speech and trouble walking and remembering things was caused by anxiety.
My symtons include excessive thin mucus in upper sinus, sometimes I can blow it our clear; in the middle way, I have crust accumulated in my nostril and sometimes I can pick and get it out (quiet a bit); and in my lower breath path or deep in my throat, I have thickened mucus and gel like tiny balls and hard to get them out. I have tried different things to reduce the mucus secreation. However none of them has been proven effective or without side effect. Lately I started to us SinusWars2.
It is either a vibration or a sensation of filling up with liquid. No other symptoms are there. No pain in urination, no pain in sex, have been married for many years with one partner, and no urge to go to the bathroom. It happens randomly, and lasts for 3-6 seconds then goes away. It is irritating but not painful. Any thoughts on this issue would be helpful.
Had it for a few years and went to my doctor who did blood tests and found I had under active thyroid. But I still get the painful bruises in the palm side of my fingers now and again. No one seems to know why. I recently had this happen to two fingers on the same hand in the same day.
When it didn't I went online and read about hyperparathyroid condition. In a nutshell, we all have 4 parathyroid glands that have nothing to do with thyroid - they just are located near it. Their only function is to regulate the calcium in our bodies for our nerve conduction, muscles and of course bones.
The best way to describe the sound is like a stomach growling, only in the throat. It's incredibly embarrassing and I can't prevent it from happening. It tends to happen a lot after I drink juice or soda, but also sometimes after meals where I only drank water. Along with the gurgle I feel some light pressure in my lower throat, near my collarbone, like there's air trying to get out (no pain).
yes, feels like a charley horse and happens sometimes at night when I turn over in bed. I don't take high blood pressure meds, and actually I have low blood pressure. I also take tons of potassium citrate for my kidneys. Thanks for posting all this info. It was very helpful. Since no one has had any results seeing a physician, I guess I won't be seeking a Dr.'s help any time soon. Please, please if anyone has taken anything that has helped, please post it.
My arguement had been that a 4yr old was given HUGE doses in a short period of time... I think something got fried! I have lost all faith in the medical field of medicine and feel doctors are actually ignorant to what drugs are capable of doing... Not everyone is the same. Different bodies react differently to the same drug... After all, some people have allergies and can die from drugs that help others get well.
She thinks this might be causing the eye problem. In addition, my thyroid was removed in 1997 and I recently was on Cipro, and I am a vegan (probably lacking in B12) and I don't drink much water. Don't know where to start...maybe with the B12?
I am 50+, male, british driver. Have problems with varicose veins in lower right leg (for which i take horse chestnut and butchers broom) also lower back problems - just recently started up again coinciding a bit with these warm feeling episodes. Not overweight or sedentary, fairly regular cyclist. Will return to osteopath and make a GP appointment to try and learn more. Very interesting to read of so many people with similar symptoms.
Boy, have you had your thyroid checked recently? Is the thyroid gland still intact? That would be my first concern, Susan. My mother once developed what looked like a goiter under her chin and her thyroid gland had to be removed, as I recall. This was years ago, so I’m working from distant memory. Of course, it could be something else of course, but that comes to mind first seeing as how many times you’ve pushed through IFN therapy.
So this last bout, i was still having the leaky problem in one ear while the other was swollen, bones in my head hurt, neck swollen etc. What's so weird about this leaky fluid....it is sticky like glue, and when it dries and crusts my ears up.....but then when i pick the crusts off, it's almost like that fluid 'knows' i just messed up its handiwork in my ear......so more fluid races out to redo it LOL. I've had this happen in the corner of my nose once too...
To everyone mystified by what might be wrong with them, please research: LARYNGOPHARYNGEAL REFLUX (LPR) For 9 months, I had all the same symptoms everyone here was talking about: choking feeling, difficulty swallowing, the "globus" feeling of something being "stuck" in the throat (swollen epiglottis flap), asthma-like wheezing in the throat, hoarse voice, etc. I finally convinced a G.I. doctor to scope down my throat, and it turned out to be Laryngopharyngeal Reflux (LPR).
My husband gets the same warm, wet sensation in the groin area inside the left thigh. We just got back from the Doc, and they took his blood for a screening, but also said that there is a cluster of nerves there that don't reallly serve much purpose. He may get it again, or it may go away. He has recently lost about 30 lbs over the last 2 1/2 mos, and has been excercising more- he rode his bike to work today. He has also just started going to the chiropractor for it as well.
