You are asking for a diagnosis. Only a physician can do that after doing a physical examination, obtaining a medical history and evaluating blood test results.

I can tell you that the pituitary gland is a tiny organ, about the size of a pea, located at the base of the brain. It helps control the release of hormones from other endocrine glands, such as the thyroid and adrenal glands.

Signs of hypothyroidism, which is an underactive thyroid gland, include fatigue, sluggishness, increased sensitivity to cold, pale and dry skin, constipation, unexplained weight gain, a puffy face, a hoarse voice, muscle aches, tenderness, stiffness and weakness., brittle fingernails and hair, depression and heavier than normal menstrual periods.

Your symptoms match the symptoms of hypothyroidism.

The swelling that you are feeling at the front of your neck can be an enlarged thyroid gland, enlarged lymph nodes or an enlarged parathyroid gland.

I suggest you make an appointment with your physician to be evaluated.
