Anyone have advice?


Are you having trouble swallowing? voice hoarse? feeling full when you start eating? If so you could have Reinke's Odema - swelling of the voice box, I have it, under control now. If not any of those symptoms you still need to see your doctor and ask him for a referral to see an ENT specialist. Any problems to do with the throat need to be investigated as soon as. Good luck and let us know how you get on.


Fairyeyes, A Hashimoto's flare up can cause swelling of the thyroid gland which can feel like a lump in your throat. Ask your GP to palpate your throat and neck next time you see GP. If swelling or lumps are felt an ultrasound scan should be ordered to view goitre (swelling) and nodules.
