    I am at a loss here. Diagnosed with a non toxic goiter, labs "normal range", and had 3 FNA's to monitor a nodule. My throat swells on and off on one side where the goiter is so bad that I need to lay down and cant swallow. Mostly I have all the symptoms of Hashimoto's for 3 years and feel so abnormal. PCP says Im fine. Allergist says I have no food allergies or any for that matter. Endo says labs are fine and there must be something else causing the 11 Hashimoto symptoms I have and to deal with the goiter in my throat because he cannot detect cancer at this point. My mom and cousin have Graves and my other cousin has Hashimotos and other cousin thyroid cancer. Are the doctors correct and its all in my head?? What else can I do? IS anyone else having this same problem with their Endo?
