  • Hi,I'm wondering if you have more than one thing going on. What do your blood tests say?Is your thyroid growing things? Have you had any scans of it?Shula

  • Thanks for suggestions.My thyroid scan showed I'm in the 20% that has no nodules, no problemsat all. My docs were stunned actually.My bloodwork always is fantastic except for mild anemia that comes andgoes, and a high CK level. They say it's not high enough for muscle pain,but they could be wrong they admit, and say for me it's maybe enough.I'm waiting for tests for the arm tumor/growth thing.That's really all I have so far. Thryoid is always good as far as TSH andfree T4, etc. goes.
