This is quite worrying. I have started having a sensation of either throat getting stuck and unable to swallow as in the normal course of just living, it falls in with sensation of swallowing tongue, which started first, pins and needles type of thing, now it is less tongue more throat...when not eating. I am on 50mcg, just under 2 months on Levo now and due for retests, supposedly after going up to 75mcg, but i haven't gone up yet, as side effects of dizzyness, some heart sensations and chronic insomnia. I don't take tests very well either, but am supposed to be on 75 before I go for test, as TSH was sky high >100 before taking Levo.
This is such a horrid sensation, it makes you want to have a panic attack to rid it, yet a panic attack hasn't happened...yet. Even big gasps don't free it, so you think you are going to have breathing trouble. I have no idea if this is getting worse or going to. I don't know if it will ease if I take 75 mcg or whether it means the Levo 50 is taking effect. I am really beyond tired and can't last normal hours of a day, even not working. I hardly do anything on any day. Up to recently my head was too awake to sleep, so I could only tell I was tired by heart symptoms. Not palpitations as such, but similar fluttering, I've even gone two days at a time without sleep.
Can anyone say they had this 'stuck' throat sensation and does it ease with a higher dose or do you think it' a bit like a hyper symptom....irrelevant of scores, that I need to get as soon as I feel fit enough to put myself thru another test. It really does make you feel panicky yet it isn't the same as a panic attack...it is more like you can't get one out (not that anyone wants one)...but you feel like you want to gag or choke to rid it. It sort of makes your throat feel dry. I suppose I am scared as a life on Levo with these side effects is unbearable. After near two months I don't know what I am looking at, I read symptoms may carry on, but I am more tired on Levo and wobblier, unsteady! If you can imagine a TSH >100 and yet feeling worse on Levo than before.
I am sure you might want the new results, which I haven't had the test for yet, lol.
