I have had on and off sore throat since Sept 2013 when I think I developed hypothyroidism but the last 3 months it's been constant and just getting worse. It's always there 24 hours a day but it's not from colds/flu or anything like that. My neck has also been getting progressively more uncomfortable and I have a feeling like there is something in my neck. My voice is also hoarse if I talk to someone more than few minutes and people over the phone constantly ask me if I'm ill.... I finally saw a very good endo couple of days ago who ordered loads of blood tests. Cannot remember all of them but it included all the things for thyroid (TSH,FT4. FT3, antibodies), B12,VitD,Ferritin,Prolactin,Cortisol,Rheumatoid antibodies ( I have no idea why?) and some other things I can't remember. He also felt my neck and said one side is slightly swollen but couldn't feel any masses..... Why would I have constant sore throat if there is no mass/cyst in my neck, does a simple swelling really cause that? It's so annoying as I feel like I'm ill all the time. I have an ultrasound in a month and it seems such a long time. It seems strange but every day I feel my neck gets more and more uncomfortable, surely nothing can grow that fast. But I almost feel like a piece of food has got stuck somewhere.....I don't have trouble breathing although swallowing is uncomfortable, like I have to make an effort to swallow.....
