Hi, I have had swallowing issues for months just diagnosed with thyroiditis and high thyroid antiboddies, can this cause that?
Can a person have post partum thyroiditis if they do not have a thyroid? How long after a levo increase does it take for a person to feel better?
Mechanism: The thyroid has 2 months of thyroid hormones stored inside it. When it gets inflamed (thyroidtis), it can't hold on to the thyroid hormones and the hormones leak out into the blood stream. That's why you have high level at the beginning. Once all the hormone is leaked out, there is no hormones left and the body has to make the hormone again which is why you become low. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have acute thyroiditis , all thyroid levels&blood tests are perfect.However I have some pain in my right and left sides und my ribs, is this related?
No: I am going to assume that your thyrioditis is de quervain's subacute granulomatous thyroiditis. This almost always goes away without causing much trouble.

I do not have a thyroid. Could I still get post partum thyroiditis? 106 lbs, no thyroid, tsh-20.76 (med inc to 125 mcg 5 days ago), 10 mo post partum
Thyroiditis: If your thyroid was surgically removed, you will have a high thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) level all the time. TSH is a feedback hormone, so it goes UP when you do not have enough active thyroid hormone in your body. Pregnancy alters thyroid status, so it is common to have changing thyroid replacement needs around the time of pregnancy. But this is not from thyroid inflammation anymore. ...Read more

Had u/s of thyroid,showed Thyroiditis,enlarged cervical lymph nodes, thyroid labs are normal, I already take synthroid , now pth 119, related?
Thyroiditis: I suspect that you are being treated for Hashimoto's thyroiditis which has a nonspecific enlarged thyroid gland seen on ultrasound. Prominent cervical lymph nodes are not unusual in these cases but generally don't appear otherwise pathologic. Synthroid keeps your thyroid hormone levels normal. Your elevated PTH suggests a parathyroid adenoma which is best evaluated by an endocrinologist or surgeon ...Read more
What does it mean I had thyroid cancer and I had a thyroidectomy had radiation therapy was diagnosed with hashimoto thyroiditis now I have 2cm growth?
Biopsy: If you have hashimoto's thyroiditis, then your thyroglobulin antibodies are elevated making it harder to use thyroglobulin to monitor for thyroid cancer recurrent. With a new growth, you will need a biopsy to make sure the cancer is not coming back. At this point, you should have an endocrinologist, a surgeon and possibly a radiation oncologist on your team. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
