Do you happen to have a picture that you could upload of your neck?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I actually don't have a picture of it. I was able to consult a doctor before and they run a test. They said that I don't have a goiter but they didn't recommend any medicine.
Endocrinologist: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 8 months ago

That's good that they didn't see a goiter, that's a good sign.

Usually the symptoms would be of course an enlarged neck and slight pain in the front of the neck.

You could also notice weight gain or weight loss depending on the thyroid level.

Usually heart palpitations and hot and cold sensation can be experienced as well.
