Can I ask about one of your reply statements... "The feeling of strangulation may be due to high TSH stimulating and inflaming remnant thyroid left after thyroidectomy."
I still have my thyroid but I get the strangulation feeling and it feels like I'm trying to breathe with a t-shirt over my throat if you know what I mean. Like I can't get a full clean breath. I don't smoke, never have but have dysthymia so usually put it down to a stress attack. Could this be my thyroid? I've also been craving milk a lot lately. I have low vitamin D levels so have to take Vit D everyday too.
I take quite a few meds for other things but the strangulation feeling can come on just sitting in my home without stressful provocation. I am also entering the menopause, I think.
I have asked several GP's to treat the patient not the blood test and although I've now found one who agrees they won't up my dosage very much saying I could end up with palpitations or worse.
