A blood test called an erythrocyte sedimentation rate is done and will be elevated if there is an inflammatory process involving the temporal arteries. Treatment is with steroids. Scalp tenderness can occur with migraine but is not typically localized to the temple. ...Read more

Yes, but: It would be potentially dangerous and possibly illegal depending upon the source of the amphetamines. Why put something in your body that is harmful and can potentially kill you? Also get off the armour thyroid, which is ground up pig tissue and have your doctor put you on brand name T4 replacement, which is better and safer. ...Read more

Complicated: I would look for other causes, although you might have compressive symptoms from your thyroid gland, i would make sure it's not something simple like reflux before taking out your gland. You need to be worked up properly. But it very well could be your thyroid. ...Read more

Possibly: If a solitary nodule can be palpated in the thyroid, is proven to be solitary on scan and is cold, there is a possibility it is an adenoma that has a 30% chance of converting. FNA does not always guarantee correct dx and if the needle hits the thyroid vessels it can result in a local hematoma intitiating the symptoms you have. ...Read more

Constant pressure & tightening in throat, sometimes worse than others. Diagnosed gurd & now cushings. Symptoms lasting + 1 year. Still no relief, help?

Difficult situation: Those symptoms are somewhat vague in that this could be many things. However, make sure you don't have an enlarged thyroid gland or other mass in the neck compressing things. These symptoms often are related to gerd and what i call laryngopharyngeal reflux(lpr). Some people require mo's of twice daily reflux meds to help. Another issue can be muscle tension dysphonia so see an ent/laryngologist. ...Read more
