Over the last 3 months, I have been having strange symptoms and when I did a search for them. thyroid came up immediately. I called my doctor and went to see him Friday. He felt my thyroid and his comments were that it was "diffusely enlarged" (meaning the whole thing and not just one side or the other), no lumps on either side were felt. When I asked him if it was "hard" his comment was "not particularly"...whatever that means. For my own sanity, he is sending me for an ultrasound and some bloodwork. However, I noticed that the tests he ordered are just TSH and T4. I have no idea why he isn't doing the T3.
Anyway, he made one other comment to me that I thought was strange. He said that it could just be the way my thyroid was made. When I looked around online (bad, I know), I couldn't find anything about a "goiter" being just the way your thyroid was made.
So...if anyone has any great advice or a story to share about a thyroid that is diffusely enlarged, with normal numbers, please do. I know this is a common problem for women so I thought maybe someone could help.
