A:   Welcome to Ask The Doctor.
We are here to help you on this medical health advice platform.

You have a thyroid nodule that might be causing thyroiditis and the symptoms you are getting. I would advise you in such scenario, to get FNAC of the nodule , which on histopathological examination will rule out its etiology. Also, you would require to get a Thyroid Scan done, which tells us that the nodule as hot spot or cold spot. You would also require to get a Thyroid profile done and diagnosis is made on compiling all these three reports. Treatment would be based on the diagnosis.
Share my opinion with your doctor and get investigated.

I hope it helps.
Stay Healthy
