    i had same problem even before my thyroid swelled a little, but the thyroid is in a location where it can cause these choking problems, not really anything that can be done

    I have the same chocking problem.I have Hashimotos and an ENT told me my thryoid is swelling up and causing the chocking problem. I'm scheduled to have the right side removed in Jan.

    First, I would want to make sure you are not allergic to the dye in the medication. I am allergic to the dye so I have to take the 50mcg tablets & cut them into portions. The 50 mcg are usually white & have no dye.

    Can you go to a regular Dr. & have him check your thyroid for size?

    The swallowing/choking problems can be from acid reflux as well as damage to the throat from thyroiditis which is what I have.

    In the meantime, stick to soft foods that go down easily. Meat is especially difficult to swallow. Water is the hardest to swallow. Fam
