Sir for last two month I have problems in my throat such a as heaviness, pain, feeling of internal cuts and upper back pain. I have consulted four doctors in my home. They gave me medicines and I took these for 45 days. Now I am not taking any medicines after the visit of last Doctor Who told that everything is alright and he said to meet him after three months. I also feel pain when I speak for long sometimes I feel loss of words. My profession is teaching. Suggest me as I am afraid of any future problems or thinking about something unexpected in future.

Dear sir, . My age is 47 years complete. I am a married male having two young children. On the ground of health-matter I am unlucky and hopeless person. My life today became very uneasy due to some acute conditions. It is likely difficult to explain the problems itself. But I am trying to describe them in my best capacity. At first I must reveal about my current profession. I am working today as a courier delivering person, so by the virtue of my job I have to move on my bicycle extensively .I think this extensive cycling would be harming me on the grounds of health. Because I am always feeling dizziness, cerebral weakness and muscular weakness. There are occasional acute headaches. Sleep is very disturbed and full of unwanted and uneasy dreams. Rising in morning become very cumbersome and thorny task for me. On the other hand my digestive system and specifically excretory system also show spiky symptoms which are nearing to IBM. Stool excavation is becoming uneasy and unsatisfying also. There is spontaneous feeling of scorching and uneasiness in the lower abdomen or annals portion.

My TSH level was 5.1 and normal was 5.0. Doctor suggested me to take 25microgram Thyroxine. I took it for a month which resulted to normal TSH to 2.9. Then I start taking medicine on alternate day. But after 1 month, TSH level shoot up to 7.2. Doctor suggested to double the dose. So now I am taking 50microgram dose. Last month, TSH level became normal to 3.8. But I am continuing my medicine of 50microgram. But sometimes, I feel little pain in throat. Sometimes I feel dizziness also. So should I continue with this dose? Is there any chance of permanent cure of hypothyroidism?

The tonsils are soft tissue masses which are located at the back of your throat, usually at the pharynx. The tonsils are masses which are part of the lymphatic system that helps fight infections. However, tonsils can themselves become inflamed and cause a lot of pain. Tonsillectomy is a procedure to remove the tonsils and relieve pain.
Why is tonsillectomy performed?
A few decades back, tonsillectomy was a routine surgery performed to relieve any pain within the tonsils. This method of treatment however has changed over the past few decades as pain medications for inflammation have improved vastly. However, tonsillitis is still performed in many cases wherein it tends to cause acute problems. Some of the cases it is applicable in are:
- Chronic bad breath problems caused by recurrent inflammation of the tonsils
- Recurrent sore throats caused by tonsillitis
- It is also done along with dental surgery for correcting teeth with imperfect positioning
- Abscess formation in the mouth
- Upper airway being obstructed due to inflammation, thus causing difficulty with sleeping, snoring, or causing sleep apnea (irregular breathing during sleep)
- Ear infections being regularly caused by inflammation of the tonsils
Other reasons why it may be recommended
Tonsillectomy may be also be recommended when there are no indications of problems but tonsillitis and other infections keep cropping up too regularly. This affects children and can make them sick or keep them in pain regularly. Some of these other indications are mentioned below:
- Tonsil infections and inflammations happening too frequently within a year
- Tonsillitis is caused by bacterial infection wherein the antibiotics aren’t effective
- Formation of pus in the form of an abscess within or around the tonsils which keep forming even after repeated drainage or administering antibiotics
Possible complications and risks
Like any other form of surgery, tonsillectomy has certain risks associated with it as well. However, these are very rare. Some of these risks and complications are mentioned as follows –
- Swelling of the mouth: The tongue and the soft palate or the roof of the mouth may swell, resulting in breathing difficulties an few hours after the surgery.
- Infection: As is the case with any surgery, infections may occur in rare cases, which may require further treatment.
- Adverse reactions to anesthetics: Many patients exhibit an adverse reaction to anesthetics and may develop symptoms such as a headache, nausea, muscle soreness and frequent vomiting.
- Bleeding during surgery or healing: Although it is rare, bleeding during and after surgery has been reported after all sorts of procedures and it may occur with tonsillectomy as well. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ENT specialist.
