I’ve been having problems swallowing for the last few months, feels like food just gets stuck, I don’t choke but it’s uncomfortable and starting to happen more often even with soft food like bread and ice cream.
Whenever I’m under the weather it seems to go straight to my throat, making it sore and my voice hoarse and more often losing it altogether.
I see a private endocrinologist who thinks I may have central hypothyroidism but I’ve never had a thyroid scan. So along with my recent swallowing problems he asked my GP to request a thyroid scan, which they did, but the radiologist at the local hospital have rejected the request.
I now need to make an appointment to see the GP. It seems that I need to have an obvious lump or goitre to have an ultrasound of my thyroid. I can’t see anything obvious, so I thought I’d ask if anyone else had a similar problem and what was the outcome?
Thanks for your help.
