Thyroid Disorders Message Board


Thyroid Disorders Board Index


Thank you for your advise. :) I have tried to look into the new health care plans and it isn't doing much but confusing me. Everything I read are based more off people's opinion than fact and they try to throw it in as fact. I actually just found out today that I got hired full time at Starbucks. Hopefully I'll be able to start soon because after 90 days, I get health insurance. :) I will watch my pain levels and see how it goes. The pain seems to fluctuate. Last night I couldn't move at all and it hurt so bad my roommate was about to take me to the hospital. I woke up this morning still very stiff but the pain is barely there. The spot where I would put pressure on it last night would make me cry out in pain, and now its very bearable. Yesterday the pain didn't seem to increase until night time. I was fine all day, so I wonder if it will hurt more later and why? On top of that I am having symptoms recently of both hyper and hypothyroidism. Like my body can't make up it's mind of which direction it wants to go. I'll give you guys a list of the symptoms that I have noticed at least:

-pain and stiffness in right side of neck towards the front. Tender to the touch.
-sore/stiff muscles for no apparent reason. Mainly upper back, right shoulder and neck focusing on the right side and front.
-neck feels and looks slightly swollen on right side towards front.
-dry skin BUT even if I am really cold my hands and feet are sweating ridiculously. Like forming puddles its gross. I've always been clammy but never like this.
-not being able to lose weight even while barely eating and exercising a lot. I go to the gym everyday and normally ride my bike 5-6 miles at the very least 3-4 times a week. I either stay the same weight or gain up to 7 lbs.
-sudden anxiety and heart palpitations. I have vasovagal syncope so being dizzy isn't out of the ordinary but lately when I get those heart racing episodes, I get really dizzy and short of breath as well. They are at random times too, most of the time its when I'm just sitting down or be talking to someone and I'll have to stop mid sentence to catch my breath.
-insomnia/fatigue this is one of the reasons I think my body can't decide which way to go. I have gone days without sleeping. I'm tired but my mind won't let me sleep. I'll just lay there forever and eventually get up and go do something. But then again, sometimes I'll sleep just fine and even if I get myself on a normal sleep schedule again I will sleep for 12 sometimes 13 hours and have to force myself to wake up. I don't know if that would actually be a symptom. It could just be my body trying to catch up. It started when all the other stuff started too so I figured I'd put it down just in case.
-oh and constant headaches but I'm gonna have to say they are caused by the neck pain.


I think I'm broken. :/ lol
I'm so glad you got hired, and I hope these 90 days go quickly! This is why we need single-payer in this country which are taxes are already paying for -- but we are not getting. It kills me to see such a young woman suffering like this and not being able to go for help. It's not right.

I had pain in my right sterno-cleido-mastoid muscle a month or so ago. It was so tender and painful. It was because my goiter (I have Hashimoto's) was enlarging and the nodule was pushed underneath my muscle. This inflamed the entire muscle from my skull all the way down to my clavicle. I'm very concerned about your pain and stiffness and shortness of breath. Please take it easy and don't over do until you can get to a doctor. Please let us know how it goes.

Almost forgot -- most of the new healthcare laws don't take effect until 2014!!!
