I have had thyroid issues for a few years, they had been fine but lately new symptoms seem to occur, in particular sore neck, like the feeling after you have the tube in your throat and can't swallow, anyone else experience things changing and requiring you back to your doctor?
Once you have known thyroid issues or on thyroid meds, you should be monitored at the very least annually (more often if your condition isn't very, very stable). Many things affect thyroid hormone levels, including aging, which all of us are doing all the time.
Do you know the cause of your thyroid issues? Are you hypo or hyper?
If you have a degenerative thyroid condition, your own thyroid may be producing more or less hormone due to environmental conditions, changes in general health conditions, aging, trauma, stress, etc.
Do you have recent thyroid tabs to post with reference ranges?
