Enlarged Thyroid Snoring
My husband told me I snore sometimes never have before. Not overweight and my b. pressure is 112/78. Take Thyroid meds for 20 yrs.-I am 60. Normal?
Sound ok: snoring is very prevalent, especially as we age. I treat patients for snoring and the results can be life-changing. Get a tape recorder and run it while you sleep. Set it to voice activation. If no luck with this, get a sleep study done - many hospitals have this available. If you snore heavily, you may be at risk for sleep apnea which can be life threatening. Good luck. ...Read more

Maybe the opposite?: Myasthenia gravis is a chronic autoimmune neuromuscular disease. In myasthenia gravis, your immune system produces antibodies that block your muscles' receptor sites for an acetylcholine, causing muscle weakness. The condition may cause weakness in your neck, arms and legs, but this usually happens along with muscle weakness and not the other way around. ...Read more
Multiple causes: Most are benign goiters, but sometimes thyroid enlargement is caused by cancer or hyperthyroidism. Treatment varies related to symptoms and cause. Most goiters do not need any treatment, but you need to see a doc to have it checked. You don't want to miss a curable cancer or suffer unnneccessarily if you have hyperthyroidism. ...Read more
Usually none!: Usually a sign of both hypothyroidism, or grave's disease, which causes overactivity. However, both thyroid nodules and malignacy can do this. You need some blood tests, and ultrasound of your thyroid, and perhaps a thyroid biopsy, if indicated.

Your PCP!: Most doctors can adequately assess your thyroid concerns, and make an appointment with an endocrinologist if needed. The tests i recommend are free t3, (liothyronine) tsh, antithyroid antibodies. If you have a goiter, you may need an ultrasound.
