I have had swollen thyroid for 3 weeks now and neck is very painful and balance is awful. Doc has prescribed thyroxine but unfortunately I haven't been able to get to chemists to get it. Dies anyone know if my neck will go down once I start it ? I also am 3 weeks into recovering from labrynthitis which us an inner ear problem so is difficult to tell what's affecting what! I am getting very frustrated and anxious about ever being better too!
