During my annual ob/gyn appointment a couple of weeks ago my new doc felt my thyroid was enlarged on one side and referred me to an ENT, my appointment is in a couple of weeks. Of course I came right home, got on the internet and I've now succeeded in freaking myself out with worst-case scenarios.
I have PCOS and struggled with infertility, always been hairy (real fun) and resistant to losing weight despite a healthy diet and lifestyle. I CrossFit and run a couple of miles 5-6 days a week yet I sit at 170 lbs, I cannot lose weight. I just thought that's how my body is and now that I'm 40 it was a fact of life, I never considered that maybe a thyroid issue could be factor.
I know no one can tell me everything will be fine but I guess I just needed to vent. My husband always says 'oh everything will be fine' and he's sick of hearing me worry.
