was still in Germany. My doctor (a nuclear specialist) also saw during the scintigram that there was something in my thyroid, but he said it would be too small to say what it is, it could be nothing, we should just keep an eye on it. I then moved countries and live now in the UK since Summer 2011. I had since then nobody checking my thyroid anymore, my gp made a standard blood test and said it would be negative! I would not have a problem with my thyroid (suddenly). So I stopped taking the L-Thyroxin. Now suddenly in October it started that my neck felt as if someone is choking me. It always came and went away for a while. I wander around with it now since 4 weeks and it scares me. I can't sit for long anymore in a normal position because it feels as if I can't breath. My neck hurts at the front where the thyroid is and I sometimes have the feeling I can feel the thyroid inside my throat I went back to my gp and she made another blood test but said there would be nothing! I can't believe that though because I am constantly strangled now. It makes me cry because through panic to be honest. My gp now admitted to request an appointment with a specialist, but she doesn't know when this is. I can really not imagine to walk around gasping for another 2-3 months I'm really desperate and I have no idea what to do. I would even go private if I would know where and how much it costs. I also suffer from PCOS if that should be important and I've added about 50kg last year! My hormones are all extremely mixed up and I fear this might have triggered worse probs with my thyroid! I'm near Cambridge. If anyone could give me advise I would be really really grateful!
