Headache &neuropathy: Can have similar symptoms and often are comorbid diseases. Neurologists or pain management specialists can help to identify and manage these conditions. At this point, you need to be evaluated, imaged and diagnosed.
Then the treatment could be applied.

Not necessarily: Family history - mother's and father's, and sibling's - can suggest a predilection for ear infections, but it is only a tendency, not definite. If there is a family history, monitor closely.

Can male breast cancer reoccur in the thyroid after 8 years of mastectomy, radiotherapy and chemotherapy?

Less likely: The thyroid would be an unusual spot for breast cancer to spread. More common sites would be bone, liver, lung and brain. But with cancer, anything is possible. If there is a nodule on the thyroid the best thing to do would be an ultrasound guided biopsy if it looks concerning.

OTC or Rx: You can start with simple over the counter antihistamines like claritin, zyrtec, Allegra (get generic store brands to save money). If those don't work, your next step is to start with your pcp and you may benefit from nasal steroid sprays (flomase, nasonex, (mometasone) rhincort)!or antihistamine nasal sprays (astepro, astelin, patanase).

My body keep on giving odd reaction, it trembles up from my chest through the throat until the jaws, so to the hands. Could it be hyperthyroidism?

...: Could mean fatigue, are you sleeping 6h-8h every night? Do you wake up at the same time most days? Do you drink 3qts/water daily? Do you walk 30 minutes every day? If not, your body is tired and wants to sleep, so will have to be shaken, or shivered, to wake up. If you walk 30min daily, avoid fried & sugary food, drink 3qts water daily, you see the difference.
