Discussions that mention synthroid

Thyroid Disorders board

I have had my thyroid removed, and I am on .175 mg of synthroid. I have recently had problems swallowing, and it feels like I always have a lump or a piece of food stuck in my throat.

My thyroid levels were all out of whack, and recently they came back as somewhat hyper (but near normal- my endo wants to keep my TSH real low, like 0.1, due to me once having thyroid cancer). I have been having some hyper symptoms (trouble sleeping, loss if weight - especially in my legs, loss of appetite).

My question is, could hyper levels cause this problem in my throat? It is really bothering me.
