I am currently having bloodwork done to have my Thyroid checked.
My MD said he felt my Thyroid in my neck....I've tried to feel for it myself just to see what he was feeling and I don't feel anything swollen.
He really didn't even say why he wanted to check it....he just said "Stand up & turn around & be still for a moment, I want to feel for your Thyroid gland". Then he said "Yes, it's a little swollen".
I don't SEE anything from mirror myself...no swelling or lump. I didn't complain or even bring up the subject,,. so, I'm guessing my weight gain possibly prompted him to check it for himself. I've noticed he seems to be questioning my sudden weight gain. I eat very little and I don't know where it's coming from either but I seem to be putting on weight with no real reason for it.
Is anyone familiar with weight gain and Thyroid issues? or Have you had this problem yourself and was treated for it?
