For hypothyroidism if thyroid tests shows that is normal and still experience symptoms means that you are highly possible in being iodine deficient. Have your iodine levels tested. It is very important for thyroid health.

Hi vinay1306,

Unfortunately we are not doctors, nor can any doctor replace the care and treatment that your mom is currently receiving. 

The recommendation of the endoscopy by her doctor is likely because of the swelling in her neck. It is important that you understand that medications rarely provide immediate relief and they may take a week or two sometimes to provide maximum relief. Sometimes, as adults get older, they forget to eat and that's where you would be of help to her to remember to have her eat and drink frequently to avoid weight loss and dehydration. 

Please remember to make a list of questions for her doctor so that you can get as much information as possible when she has a doctors appointment.

All the best,
