Could be: It is difficult to reliably sonographically differentiate hashimoto thyroiditis from other thyroid pathology. Ultrasound features can be variable depending of the severity and phase of disease. A diffusely enlarged thyroid gland with a heterogeneous echotexture is a common sonographic presentation.

Hyperhidrosis: If not due to medicine or hormone changes, it could be due to hyperhidrosis. Manualized cognitive behavior psychotherapy can be instrumental. Excessive sweating can also be treated by anticholinergic agents, benzodiazepines, or Buspirone (many of these used by anxiety). Very rarely regional sympathectomy is performed if no benefit from the aforementioned.

What to if I am going to john hopkins hospital to get thyroid tested - what is the test?

Good doctor: There are many "thyroid tests". More important than a specific test is the judgement and insight of the doctor ordering the tests, so that he gets the right ones, and interprets them properly. Hopefully you will get that from johns hopkins.
