My son is exactly the same and at 10 years old he was having his Med check with his doctor and he during his physical the doctor found his goiter was enlarged and was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism and Hashimotos Disease. When a child’s thyroid isn’t working as it should they will have bad behavior problems and unfortunately testing for this is NOT a standard test that is required for doctors to preform when your child is born… instead the only time they will test for it is when they feel an enlarged goiter and by then the Hypothyroidism is already at its worst. So even if your doctor don’t feel one maybe asked to have the test done anyways. Just something to think about.
