I am fairly new to the HW. I have been here for a few weeks. I am so happy to have found the website.
I was recently diagnosed with Mixed Connective Tissue Disease and have been in a lot of pain over the past several weeks due to what I assume is a flare.
When I saw the Rhuemy he said that my thyroid was swollen and that I should have my primary care dr. check it out. I had bloodwork done prior to seeing the rhuemy and my thyroid was ok. Is it necessary for me to go back for more tests if the one I had a month or so ago was fine?
Please let me know what your take is on this subject because I dont want to go back if it is not necessary.
