I had thyroid blood tests done as a new patient, but I also have not been feeling well. I also advised my doctor that 2 years ago, I had a thyroid scan and showed small nodules. I felt they should have been looked at again as I was having pressure feelings on my throat, a hard time swallowing and a strangling/choking sensation all the time. I went today, saw bright spots on the screen and have now to wait 3 days for results.

I just had routine blood work done after my yearly exam. I am glad I did because it turned out that I have Hypothyroidism.
