Anyone have trouble swallowing? I notice that when my thyroid aches, I also have trouble swallowing. I have had ultrasounds done and I have a very small nodule. It does not affect my breathing or eating at all but when I just swallow by reflex, it is difficult. Any thoughts?
I too have nodules - and have at times had difficulty swallowing - so far not breathing - but I sometimes have a choking feeling or lump in my throat feeling - the endo thinks my nodules are too small to cause this. But I think if the nodule is located right in the middle of your neck you feel it more when you swallow. Also I have learned that the lump in the throat feeling can be caused by other things like acid reflux (symptom of hypo) and anxiety....Don't know if this helps any -
