Re: off the wall ?
You can have sub sternal goiters that grow in all sorts of directions. I'd call the doctor and let him/her know what's going on. It could be thyroid related or it could be something totally different. Pain is the body's way of saying there is a problem. If your doctor blows you off, I'd go see an Ear Nost and Throat specialist.
I nearly choked to death on a turkey sandwhich while going through a hypo stage. Ended up in ER where they diagnosed dysphagia (trouble swallowing), but I've learned that the most common thing hypothyroid sufferers choke on is breads and meats.
