Lump in throat when swallowing

I am very new here and just wondering whether feeling a lump in your throat when swallowing is usual with hypothyroidism. It's been there since February but lately is getting more obvious. There is no external lump that I can see. I think it may be connected to the pulsating ringing in my ears. That's been there since February. I've lost 2.5 stones in the past year and am now under weight. My thyroid levels are low but within normal ranges. T3 is 3.7 (lab range 3.1-6.8).

It's possibly due to a thyroid nodule. Ask your GP to palpate your throat and neck. If a palpable lump is detected you should be referred for an ultrasound scan to examine your thyroid. T3 is low so you are not hyperthyroid. Your GP should investigate unexplained weight loss.

Thank you Clutter for your reply. Can these things go away with with correct level of thyroid replacement?
