I am a 30 year old female. I have Hashimoto's hypothyroidism since four years. I take Eltroxin daily and go for a thyroid sonar once a year. I went for an ultrasound yesterday and my report stated that my thyroid features are consistent with Hashimoto's thyroiditis. But, what really freaked me out was these two comments:
What does this mean? Should I be concerned? I was sick with a bad flu about four weeks ago, had a high fever and ended up on antibiotics. Could the lymph nodes still be swollen from that?

Thank you very much for the response. I currently have sinus issues daily. Every morning, I wake up sneezing and with a runny nose. I can feel the mucus in my throat, watery eyes and headaches. Sometimes, the sinus pressure gives me a toothache in my lower jaw, like a general ache.
