Re: neck injury adn swallowing????????
We have some stuff in common, I have had dysphagia (swallowing/choking) problems, I have had multiple levels of problems and I also have a thyroid disease.
THere were times when I would lay down I felt like I was choking or when I eat food when I get horribly painful spasms in my esphogus. I had swallowing studies done and they found nothing and from the xrays etc they didn't see a pronounced swelling, but seems like it was related because these issues have improved post surgeries.
On your Thyroid - not sure if you are taking thyroid meds, but if you have nodules or a goiter that are benign, there is a possibility to shrink the thyroid a bit once properly treated with medication. My sister had to have her nodules taken out because they were suspicious, but they left mine in.
