Re: Constant Throat clearing and Phlegm!
I have all that but before I started Synthroid. It has been better with the Synthroid. Hopefully you can talk to your doctor and see if you need something else or maybe you have a coexistent condition. I had a CT a year before I found I had Hashimoto's and all my sinuses were filled. I sometimes get such thick stuff in my throat that I can't breathe, but like I said it's been better lately, not so often. I also had constant upper palate and back throat pain, and constant sinus pain, especially on the right side (my eye would throb badly when I was tired, etc.). I was found to have a small nasal polyp (which I learned can be caused by thyroid problems) and a slight deviated septum on the right, so that doesn't help. Hope you feel better soon. Sorry if all of this didn't relate to you, but sometimes I think telling stories helps b/c maybe someone can relate it to themselves, or learn something.
I have headaches a lot too, and I think those and my sinus and throat problems all have to do with the thyroid problem. Also, the upper palate pain may be affected by the sinuses, the ones right over the top gums.
