Goiter, should I be worried?
Watch this 
View More Posts Ignore
I found out last year that I have a small goiter on the backside of my thyroid(I was having swallowing issues). Lately I have been losing my voice very often, almost once or twice a week. I had neck surgery a few years back and my muscles atrophied so I thought that might be the reason, but remembering the diagnosis of the goiter makes me think I should look into it. I don't have insurance so I don't like to go to the doc unless I really need to (I'm a student and only work part time!) Also I have been very tired the past few weeks, like I have to take nap breaks in the middle of school projects so I can focus. Any ideas are welcome!

" I am so sorry you are feeling like this, it is frustrating. Can you go to a free clinic in your area and get your thyroid tested? I have multiple nodules on my thyroid and have Hashimotos disease with it. That is an autoimmune thyroid disease. The nodules were pressing on my windpipe and making it hard to swallow, breathe and I coughed 24/7. I started on the natural thyroid meds and they shrunk but many things can make them grow again. I am going to get an ultrasound done soon again. "
