Does this sound like a nodule?

I was diagnosed hypo and have been taking Levoxyl since July 4th. In early August I started noticing that sometimes when I would turn my neck I would have a sudden urge to cough. Sometimes when I am talking my voice will all of a sudden cut out or I will get the urge to cough. I'm not sick.... I've even been to my doctor but he didn't know what it was. Could this be my thyroid? I kind of feel like I should go see an endo since my doctor has only run blood tests on me. Any advice?

Greta2 have you had an ultrasound to see if your thyroid is enlarged?
Sometimes if your thryoid is very enlarged it will press on your trachea or
esophagus and cause problems with swallowing and breathing.

Thanks for your reply. I have never had an ultrasound. I have only had blood tests and I get the feeling that my doctor would never suggest an ultrasound. He is a good doctor but honestly I don't think he knows much about thyroid issues. Should I see a specialist?
