Please can you tell me if you are hypo and suffer from neck pain? I've been getting swelling in my neck on and off but the hospital just tell me that the swelling is there but surgery is not necessary. I am newly diagnosed with an under active thyroid and have seen an endocrinologist and surgeon about this. I have another neck scan in August to ensure I'm still free from lumps etc (please god). My neck is however still painful at the moment and as well as putting on weight I feel like crap with a heavy neck on top of that. Is this typical for a thyroid problem??
