lump in throat
I was diagnosed with hypothyroid in Feb/08.  Since starting on synthroid, I have had a feeling of a "lump" in my throat and also it sometimes gets so bad, it gives me a headache.  My blood levels now show "normal' but this problem is getting worse.  What could it be?  Also, since starting on the synthroid, I am often getting heart fluttering.  Is this normal?

Would have your doctor evaluate the thyroid by palpation and possibly ultrasound to see if the lump may be a thyroid nodule.

You may have to re-check the TSH level  to make sure that the dose of Syntroid is not too high (to cause Hyperthyroidism)

I really think that the Synthroid is the problem with my pressure in the throat.  Is it possible to stop the synthroid until I see my Dr.?  I have an appointment booked for June 12th.  Why would I have a thyroid nodule all of a sudden?  Is it possible that starting the synthroid did this?  I felt fine before the synthroid and I am starting to feel I should never have gone on it.  I don't know what my levels were but I don't think they were very high.  Thank you.

Not a doctor, just a patient.
I have a constant feeling of a lump in my throat, and there is a lump in my throat. I haven't been on the med since last November.  Initially, I went to the doc with that lump feeling, long before being diagnosed with thyroid disease and being put on any med. Lumps are probably a result of the disease process, not the Synthroid.

You probably should get the ultra sound to make sure.
Best wishes to you.
