This is my thyroid disorder, both lobes were scanned systematically, solid nodules are seen, 2 of 10 mm and 14x15mm in left, 1 of 17x14cm in the right lobe and 1 of 19x14 mm in the isthmus. So conclusion made by doctor is thyroid nodules.

I don't know what kind my thyroid disorder is, but I have been told my thyroid is underactive. I have panic all the time. I also have MS (multiple sclerosis), I wonder if that is why I have panic.
