Good News/Bad News (depends on how you look at it)
I finally got the tests results back and have talked with the endocrinologist.

The tests were NORMAL.

That's right, no abnormalities, no enlarged thyroid, no nodules or masses.

. . .   ?

This drops us back to Square One, except that I'm worse off than before and it feels like I'm going downhill.

Next step: convince my general to let me see an ENT specialist (Ears, Nose, Throat)... as I still feels like I'm being slowly strangled.  There's got to be something amiss in one of the organs in my neck, I can't imagine my vocal cords feeling like a walnut stuck in my throat is normal. :P

Current Mood: crushed crushed

oh, and BTW...

The endo says the tests prove I don't have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. So, why do I have all these symptoms? GRRR.

I hope they figure out what exactly the problem is, so you can get well and stay well::snugs::

*hugs* I hope you find out what it is soon, hon. I hate medical mysteries when it's my friends.

Ugh, hopefully this ENT specialist will be more competent to figure out what is source of the problem.

The last person I knew who went to the doctor for a mysterious problem in his throat was McMoo...

I've got my fingers crossed that you will be alright.

...and it's not out of the question to ask for a re-test, if that's possible. Even lab technicians make mistakes.

Be well.

Rrrrrg. Definitely go see an ENT, and keep complaining that something seems wrong, until it gets better.

I also on general principle refuse to believe any test that says you're normal. ;)
