First a correction from my initial post - that should have been "hypothyroid" - not "hyperthyroid."  Pesky typos.   :-*

I'm honestly not sure about Hashimotos causing swollen lymph nodes; my guess for mine currently is either a sinus infection or an infected tooth but I tend to get a bit alarmed when they swell.  Mine are on either side of my neck toward the middle.  They had been tender to the touch several days ago but aren't as much now.  I've been taking Vitamin C today since it is an anti-inflammatory.

I totally understand about the fear of waiting for results of blood tests.  I go in for results of my latest panel on Thursday and I'm already getting hyper-anxious.  Let's expect the best for both of us.  :happy0151:

I have at least 3 enlarged nodes in my neck which I have posted about a few times. Feeling them causes me extreme anxiety.
Then 2 days ago when I was washing my neck I felt a tiny lump along the side of my neck. At first I thought it was a vein protruding but after giving it a good feel and comparing it to the other side, it definitely feels like a tiny lump. This one is very new. Panic stations.

I feel a bunch of lumps on my neck, right on that muscle that runs down both sides of the neck. I can only really feel them if I completely look to my right or left. anyone else feel this?

Hi Brooke,
I know we have conversed a lot on previous "node" posts. The big 3 that I have I can feel when I am facing forward normally. This new small bump I feel can only really be felt when I stretch my neck to the side, that's how I noticed it actually. It feels like it's on a vein but I'm not sure. What do you think? Is that a node or something else?
Are you still pregnant? How are you getting on?

I'm guessing that lymphoma nodes would be very large and we wouldn't have to stretch our neck in order to feel them. When my health anxiety is in full swing, like it is now, I have a hard time believing that though...I actually had my twin girls on March 26. I was only 35 weeks when I had them but they were in great health. I think that's why my health anxiety is really bad right now...because I'm so paranoid of leaving them  :(

Yeah I wonder. I don't really want to google more stuff on nodes, I've been there done that, and even without googling it now I'm still freaked out.
Congratulations on your babies! I hope all is going well. Your hormones will be contributing to your anxiety right now. Hormones start to settle down at about 12 weeks postpartum, so hang in there! I can totally empathise though. Sure my HA started after I gave birth. That's my story :( Realising I'm a mere mortal :(
