Benign solid nodule growing fast. Normal TSH but pressing against my windpipe. Feeling dizzy and tired. Could the nodule cause it?

In brief: Get eval!
Thyroid can get large enough to obstruct airway.
Get checked asap! the more obstructed you are, the more difficult it is for your anesthesiologist to perform life-saving intubation. Ct usually good choice to evaluate.

In brief: Needs to evaluate
Yes, a growing nodule that has become symtomatic should be evaluated further. The thyroid test tell you that the thyroid is functioning okay but a large nodule can compress local organs causing other symptoms.
Speak with your doctor who can order other imaging studies to evaluate how the nodule is affecting nearby anatomy.
