Strange lump in my throat..
In the last three weeks, I've had this strange feeling of a lump in my throat. It doesn't hurt, my voice hasn't changed, I don't have a cold or symptoms of cold or flu. I can no longer take vitamins or large pills. I can just press the base of my throat slightly and want to gag. Here's the catch...
I had my thyroid and one parathyroid removed 10 years ago, so I know it's not a goiter. I plan on going to the dr. for it after the holidays, but I wanted to know if someone out there who has had a complete thyroidectomy has ever had a problem with scar tissue...I don't know if that is the problem, but the feeling is in the same place as my scar. I don't feel a lump or anything. Usually, we can push down at the base of our thoats right above the bone and make an indention. I can't do that now. I'm not in pain, I'm not running a fever or anything like that. The only way I can explain it is that it feels like after my thyroidectomy when they removed my stitches and my throat started swelling. I did what they told me to in the hospital which is drink cold water and eat ice and it hasn't helped. I've tried everything, water, hot tea, cold tea, coffee, coke. The margarita made me forget about it for a while, so it was the most effective!
Any ideas out there?
