Losing weight in neck area

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight in neck area


Avatar n tn Thyroid tests in December came back with high levels of Anti-Thyroglobulin AB 35.3, High T4 Free 1.75 and low TSH .01. My doctor put me on Nature Thyroid and also began working with adrenal issues. I also have RA and take predisone and enbrel. My fatigue, weight gain, depression, heat and cold sensitivity, and dry skin have continued and after a short improvement have gotten worse. I was tested again last week and everything came back normal except my TSH which is now <.
Avatar f tn Just because you have fat in the abdominal area, doesn't mean you are overweight; it could mean that you need exercise to get rid of it and tone the muscles. Have you ever tried yoga? You can search the internet for free videos to learn how to do it. MedHelp has an excellent food diary, that will help you calculate your calorie needs. Here's a link to another site that will make it simple to calculate them also, plus provide a lot of diet information.
Avatar m tn Thanks for the comment. I'd like to say the ones in my neck are extremly movable, and seem to get bigger and smaller. I can push them too the left side of my neck anytime. I'm getting more worried because of these mouth bumps, and now what feels like a hard spot in my armpit. Everything I do goes against it though. I'm not losing weight, I'm gaining weight. I don't have night sweats, or chronic fatigue. Everything is pretty much just there, and I seem to live a normal life.
Avatar f tn t have any problem losing fat in my legs, arms, face and neck. I need some advice as to how to lose weight in my abdomen (stomach) area. Can someone help with this issue?
Avatar f tn The problem is that I just want to lose my belly, face, and neck without losing my hips, butt, and legs. I need help can someone give me some advice.
Avatar n tn I think we're on the same page. Now that you say it, claustrophobia is probably the right word to use. I don't have any thyroid problems as far as I know, but the feeling is around that area or right on it, not sure. I have to "cover" my neck/thyroid with my hand to get rid of the feeling we're talking about. Do you have any idea what this is all about?
Avatar n tn When I do a more vigorous exam on her, I can actually feel another enlarged node on the right, as well as two more in the chest area. They are quite large, ranging in size from a grape to a golfball. They do not seem to be tender at all. I am going to do some research on canine lymphoma. Is it common in dogs this young?
Avatar n tn The last coupke days,I have felt odd in the neck throat area..like there is a lump im there.You know how they feel your neck and throat when feeling your thyrroid.Also i jus went to a wedding and we noticed my face looks rounder and kinda like i have a double chin...you know im on meds for my thyroid..any ideas what this feeling would be?

1149046 tn?1264361586 If I lost 20 pounds I would be completely slim. I really only need to lose weight around my stomach area. My question is what are some good exercises that really target your stomach ? Also is it true that it is harder for women to lose weight than it is for men ? And does Mega -T Green Tea with hoodia work ?
Avatar n tn It can also be due to superficial nerve compression (lateral femoral cutaneous nerve), that comes from the hip area and gets pinched. This condition is called meralgia paresthetica and is often due to weight gain or wearing tight clothes and belts. Losing some weight or wearing loose clothes and belts often helps relieve the pain/numbness/tingling. Also injection of lignocaine (anesthetic agent) at the site helps. It can also be a simple muscle pull.
Avatar f tn Stomach will itself go in(contract in). The breathing in(through the nose) will happen automatically. Establish a rhythm and do for 20 to 30 minutes twice a day. Children under 15 years – do 5 to 10 minutes twice a day. Not for pregnant women. Seriously ill people do it gently. Thyroid point – press (50 times) the fleshy bit on palm between the base of thumb and wrist on both hands. You will feel pain when you press.
Avatar f tn t seem concerned, but as a mom I am. Last night I felt another swollen node in his groin area, again it is not fixed. He is very active and seems perfectly healthy as he is gaining weight and devoloping as he should. The only other concern I have which may or may not be related to the swollen glands is that he itches quite a bit, regardless of changing detergents, lotions, etc.
Avatar n tn Your Thyroid could be not working properly. I was losing my hair & gaining weight rapidly & found out that my Thyroid was to blame. That is why I take a synthetic hormone for my thyroid now. I've stopped gaining the weight but before we had discovered what was causing all of my problems I went from a healthy 150lbs to an unhealthy 360lbs in about 6months time. Now that we have me on the synthyroid.
Avatar f tn I've been having a lot of anxiety about my health lately and that is causing a lot of my health problems I feel. I have lost weight in the last couple months and have gotten sick a lot too. I feel like I've been researching so much online and going to the doctors more than I ever have. I fear my weight loss is from a disease. I fear my slightly swollen lymph node on my right side of my neck is cancer even though I am currently down with a cold and taking antibiotics.

649848 tn?1534633700 Well, this has really been a crazy day and I apologize for not posting earlier. It was a beautiful day and I spent a good share of it outside, starting with my morning walk and ending with relaxing in the porch, watching the birds. In between, I watched a video of a calligraphy class that took place while I was on vacation and included a class in painting flowers. Anyway, everything was pretty quiet again this week - no doctor's appointments, etc.

Avatar m tn (teeth, tongue, gums, neck, arms, legs, fingers, and bottom of feet.) Everything is bilateral and equal on both sides and they all showed up simultaneously. My skin also feels extremely dry, and like my muscle is wasting away. Although I haven't lost any weight which is weird. Also found out that my Testosterone is is 231 which is extremely low for my age (30), and also that I have a slipped disc in my c5-c6 cervical area.

Avatar m tn I have had a constant Migraine for the last 6 1/2 months, large lymph nodes in my neck more so on the left side.. pain in my neck and shoulders, feeling of deafness in my left ear for around a minute at a time with a buzzing sound, random "moving" pain throughout my body, constant back pain. blurred and moving vision at times..
Avatar f tn I agree with grannieannie -- don't take phentermine while nursing........ in fact, I doubt seriously that you will even be able to find a reputable doctor who will prescribe it, since you are breastfeeding. You say you are counting calories, so I have to ask what types of food you are eating. You need to eat foods that take longest to break down in the body -- lean protein, high fiber. The longer it takes your food to be digested, the longer you will fell full.
Avatar n tn I had partial thyroid lobectomy in 2007 due to goiter and benign nodules in right lobe. I now have a mass (possible scar tissue) on right side and benign tumor on left side. Since biopsy with ultrasound, I am prone to loss of voice or hoarseness that will sometimes last over one week. In 3 1/2 months, I have lost my voice 3 times. Is this common?
Avatar f tn t that uncommon since the growth spurts cause either weight gain, or length gain, but in my experience (3 kids too - 16, 18, 23) they never happen together. My kids have gained 3-4 inches in height, while losing 2 lbs in weight. It all evens out in the end! The most important indicator will be her behavior - again, learned from years of raising kids... one with asthma, psoriosis and ADHD! I wish you both the best and am anxious as well to hear what her doctor says!
Avatar f tn Also I throw my neck back alot because I always get shivers up my neck and sometimes I feel somthing role in the back of my neck. My neck crams when I throw it back now because I do it so often. In Febuary I was at a swim meat and my neck hurt so much I couldn't move. It was a pulsing stabbing pain that moved up my neck to my head on the left side and started hurting on the right until I put ice on it. Could that be connected to nerves???
Avatar n tn lot better then before but i still feel stiffness in my neck ,also i feel weird .so is escitlopram working for me ?i cant c my doc in a month ,i am confused.
3093770 tn?1389739126 I kept losing weight up until about December following treatment. I completed Tx Aug. 25, 2012 and was still losing weight in December. By January I was no longer losing weight. You may notice your weight stabilizing within a couple of months.
