Frequent Tingling, Sore Throat And Lumps, Mild Cough, Fever, Heavy Head And Pain, And Excessive Sweating
At noon I am a 29-year-old woman with a history of heartburn, a thyroid with a left nodule as large as a hard salak seed 2 years ago ultrasound examination and blood check, but the doctor did not recommend taking drugs only for a healthy regulated diet. And I have applied for so long that I don’t eat junk food, MSG, seafood, instant noodles. A year later my thyroid nodules suddenly went flat out of sight again, I thought I had been killed and had never checked up to the doctor anymore because I thought my body was fine. Well the last 3 months I felt often very good tingling, 1 month ago felt a sore throat like someone who was odd and sick to drink or food, even sleepy sleepy pain, salivary pain and a slight cough and a slight body fever, severe head and often headache, my sweating is excessive even if I don’t move, I can’t take my check up to the doctor and haven’t taken any medicine, what else is now that my corona outbreak is rampant so I don’t want to go to the doctor because I’m just being drunk, what I want to ask is what symptoms I’m experiencing right now is the thyroid effect recurring again, is it dangerous or not ?? Can thyroid nodules disappear on their own ?? And the solution I have to do in the current condition ?? Thank you please answer 🙏

Thank you for the question.
Frequent tingling, sore throat and lumps, mild cough, fever, severe head and pain, and excessive sweating, if you view from your information, it is most likely indeed caused by a disturbance in your previous thyroid gland. As is known, the thyroid gland has an important function in regulating the body's metabolism. Therefore, if this gland has a problem, for example due to nodules that are not handled optimally, there can be complaints, such as what you are experiencing right now. Indeed, thyroid nodules can be treated varies depending on clinical symptoms that arise, some are given enough medication, observation and lifestyle modification, even surgery and other therapeutic modalities.
Not only because of thyroid gland disorders, your complaints at this time can also arise due to other factors, such as respiratory tract infections (including COVID-19 which is currently endemic), infections in other organ systems, inflammatory disorders, allergies, fibromyalgia , gastric acid reflux, nerve disorders, malnutrition, psychological disorders, and so on.
Without checking directly, of course it is difficult for us to ascertain the originator of your complaint, is it purely related to thyroid gland disorders, or are there other triggers. Responding to the outbreak of COVID-19, indeed you are encouraged to remain at home and only see a doctor if there are urgent complaints to minimize your risk of contracting the disease. However, if indeed your complaint feels very disturbing, it would not hurt you to consult a doctor or doctor of internal medicine for further evaluation and treatment so that your complaints improve. Further examination, such as blood tests, ultrasound, x-rays, and other supporting tests may be the doctor will do to make it clear the treatment that needs to be given.
In the meantime, ease your complaint first by:
Warm compresses on the head that are painful and often tingling parts of the body
Take paracetamol so that pain and fever subside
Drink at least 2-3 liters of water a day, especially water
Eat a variety of foods with balanced nutritional value, especially those containing rich calcium, potassium, magnesium, and vitamin B complex
Do not smoke
Stay away from alcohol
Use a mask while still coughing
Discipline to exercise, get enough rest, manage stress well, and live a healthy lifestyle
Hope this helps ...
