Re: Could these symptoms be related to Thyroid?

Usually symptoms from thyroid nodules/masses are actually constriction symptoms---tightness neck choking type. Sometimes these come from thyroid diseases---graves or hashimotos---too much hormone or too little which can cause symptoms---you should have your thyroid bloodwork done because that thyroid will have to come out--it's very large, and is growing into your chest likely, and can damage your vocal chords and affect swallowing and breathing. You should find a really great thyroid surgeon with tons of thyroid experience, they are usually ontorongologists/ents.
