In brief: Hyperthyroidism

Hyperthyroidism is an over active thyroid which can lead to anxiety eg nervousness as well as exophthalmos or protrusion (proptosis) of eyeball which might be experienced as pain/pressure.
Thyroid nodule needs to be investigated as graves disease is common cause of hyperthyroidism & exophthalmos. Go see your family doc for initial testing, then referral to endocrinologist & ophthalmologist.

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes but

I totally agree except for the back pain unless this is from muscle spasm from Adrenalin rush from potential thyroid storm.
