Everyone seems to ask about this after a TT. Mine have gone done a lot. I massage them -peachy12 has a good explaination of what they are.
I went back and copied a few posts - if you want to read all in that thread you can find it by the link (if I remembered to put it on). I put the date/time on some of them-they are the last post of the thread - you can find by going back on the pages to that date and time.[url]http://www.healthboards.com/boards/showthread.php?t=368427&highlight=muscle s[/url]

He said it will take about 4 months to heal as the muscle reattaches itself. My headaches have also increased severely (now almost daily) and I am feeling crappy. It is your body adjusting to the thyroid meds and they will probably have to be changed at the next follow up when they run your blood tests. I feel for you

My throat took about 6 weeks til it felt normal again and I am just at 6 months and even this month I notice a huge difference in my scar and the smallness of my neck. It looks so skinny again!!
