I went through a LOT of BS trying to get my thyroid issues diagnosed. I have swelling only on the back side of my thyroid, and that's nearly impossible to see on a ulrasound scan. I also produce plenty of thyroid hormones, but my body doesn't metabolize them very well, so I have to have more.
These two things kept me from getting diagnosed as hypothyroid for 18 months, until I found a doctor that moved away from the mainstream 'doctoring' and only uses natural meds (except in emergencies) for treating these issues. One ENT wanted to just do surgery on my throat instead of even considering my thyroid as being an issue!!
