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

Hashimotos, thyroid function stable while off Medes past 12 months, antibodies really high, still get symptoms and swelling of thyroid?

Hashimotos, thyroid function stable while off Medes past 12 months, antibodies really high, still get symptoms and swelling of thyroid?

That's not uncommon: Hi. Hashimoto's defined by thyroid autoantibodies, with or without a goiter, and normal thyroid function is fairly commonly seen (when it's looked for, that is). The degree of elevation of autoantibodies does not imply how soon thyroid function will begin to be lost. I recommend just follow your thyroid function periodically and anytime new symptoms arise. Good luck! ...Read more
