Hi everyone, recently diagnosed with Hashimotos after discovering my thyroid is underactive a few months ago, am now on 75mcg Levothryoxine from GP.
For the last 12 months I've been getting a sore throat, more like a lump in throat feeling, but quite low down. I now am putting 2 and 2 together - I'm guessing it's Thyroid related! It's not a cold or throat infection as I never have any of those symptoms.
My question is, why does it come and go? It'll feel like it's swollen or lumpy for maybe 5 days, then go away for a few weeks, then come back?
I've been doing all the textbook things for reducing antibodies after reading Izabella Wentz's book - strict Paleo diet, have had my vitamin levels tested and am supplementing the things I need, especially Vit D, Selenium, Zinc, B12 etc, healing my gut etc etc.
I am waiting for Endo referral currently but any explanation or advice on if there is anything I can do to reduce the throat symptoms would be appreciated.
