That is quite the story!! It really bothers me how much women's symptoms get pushed off for "stress" and the use of SSRIs. That has been a constant issue for me. Each and every time I actually do have health problems. Pisses me off. I do hope you get the spinal lesions evaluted. Follicular thyroid cancer has a penchant for spreading to the bones, while papillary likes to go to the lungs. Since you have the follicular variant, you need to have that checked. I did know a woman way back on the original AOL thyroid cancer support group that had thyroid cancer mets to the spine. She did end up with some pins in her back but her cancer was controlled and she had no further spread once treated. But she required very close follow up due to the bone mets. I really do think you should push for a biopsy once things calm down for you.
