have you got a couple of good pillows to keep you at a higher level in the bed as that may help with your breathing at night when lying down..i don't know if i am explaining it???
good that you are used to it......i guess that is a good thing.......sort of like learning to live with knee pain!!!???
all the best with your journey....keep us posted as to how things are going.......blessings and hugs........lita

Not so good when I get a cold or flu as my throat gets more swollen due to coughing, sometimes it is annoying and a little hard to swallow and breathing can be a little harder when I am lying down or through the night, but otherwise it is ok, I have had it for awhile so I am use to it now, and know what to avoid that might aggravate it. The Dr said it is best to leave well enough alone and as long as I can breathe & swallow they will not operate for which I am thankful for, as it is not a very nice surgery to have and can sometimes alter your voice!

It looks like a good site for info -
Unfortunately I have already had tests & biopsy and have been diagnosed with a goiter which is the size of a golf ball!

Thanks for the info about the t3 test. I have all the symptoms of low functioning thyroid. My doctors always say my thyroid test is OK, but I have never seen the results, I am going to ask for a printout. Have to be more proactive! My naturopath is giving me Lugol's Solution of iodine and iodide which doctors used to give to patients before all the synthetic hormones were prescribed. Many people are very low in iodine and so many cases now of low thyroid function, especially in the Great Lakes area. Soils in this area are depleted of iodine. Iodized table salt does not have enough iodine to make a difference and this form does more harm then good. It is not a natural salt, unlike Himalayan or sea salt. Lots of info on the Net about all this, important that our thyroids are functioning properly, esp as we get older.

Other signs of slow thyroid are loss of outer part of eyebrows and lower than normal body temperature.

Signs Your Thyroid
Is Out of Whack

Weight gain or weight loss may be the most
well-known symptom, but that's not the only
hint your thyroid may be going haywire.
