1cm nodule on inhomogeneous thyroid. Severe pain, swelling, and tingling in both wrists. Possible Hashimoto's disease symptoms?

Unlikely: The symptoms of Hashimoto's thyroiditis are those of gradual failure of the thyroid gland and clinical hypothyroidism. I don't know what "inhomogenous" means. What did the history, physical exam of the thyroid, serum TSH, and serology reveal? A sub-cm nodule is only biopsied if there are concerning radiographic qualities. Was scintigraphy or ultrasound done? ...Read more

Pain under jaw in submandibular gland, CT ,mri and dental X-rays normal. DX of salivary gland problems or oromandibular dyskinesia. Would botox help?

Perhaps, but: It makes more sense to find out what is the cause of the pain and dyskinesia. The most common cause for such pain is an unresolved infection draining from an unhealthy tooth. Dyskinesia can be a local factor related to the TM joint or a systemic factor, such as a stage 2 Lyme Disease manifestation like Parkinsons Disease or MS. ...Read more

Pain in neck radiates to shoulder and arm no chest pain and other symptoms.... Cause? PCP appt? History: HTN PCOS

Pain in neck radiates to shoulder and arm no chest pain and other symptoms.... Cause? PCP appt? History: HTN PCOS

A strain: This pain is most likely related to strain or overuse..you may not be aware of how or when it occurred. Since you have no other symptoms and are young, I think you can manage it yourself for a couple days: ice (15 minutes 3-4 times/day), then possibly heat, gentle stretching, avoid re-injury, & ibuprofen 600 mg three times a day for just a couple days. If not better, to PCP. Good luck! ...Read more
