From time to time all through my thyroid problems and treatment with T4 (7/8 years) I have occasionally had difficulty swallowing food (it seems to get stuck and I have great difficulty swallowing it down and feel like I'm going to bring it up again - sorry!) and a tight feeling in the base of my throat most of the time. Both my doctor and consultant have felt my neck and say I don't have a goiter. As I have had problems swallowing both my lunch and evening meal today (whilst out with friends - very embarrasing), I am starting to wonder if this is something I should look into more. Could it be that I am not on enough medication for my hashimoto's (have recently (two weeks ago) been given 15mcg a day of T3 and reduced T4 to 125mcg from 150mcg).
Does anyone else suffer from this swallowing problem? I am getting quite worried now.
PS I very often have a dry throat and drink a lot of water.
