I just wanted to update everyone on me. I actually am suffering more now than ever. I am having such a horrible time swallowing, choking on just about everything. The last thyroid scan they did it showed borderline enlarged, but the Endo was not concerned. URRRR. Oh and my TSI antibodies were tested as well and they were 125 and the limits were 129-..?? So they were slightly high but again, Dr was not worried..Why am I having such a difficulty swallowing? I know you may not know, but do any of you have any advice?
I feel for you because I can relate. I have a hard time swallowing as well. But at this point not sure if it's from the thyroid or not. Do you have an enlarged nodule? My endo said that could cause it. Also, STRESS can. And have you seen an ent or gastroenterologist? I have been told GERD can cause that swallowing problem sensation. I have been told I have GERD, even though I rarely get heartburn, but they said it can cause that lump in the throat feeling. Good luck.
Go see a gastroenterologist. Have you ever had trouble with reflux in addition to this. I have GERD in addition to an almost non functioning thyroid. This is causing pressure on my esophogus in addition to scar tissue from the GERD. I have esophogeal strictures because of this. About every five years, I go in for a procedure where they literally stretch my esophogus. Then I am good again for another few years. It would be worth a try.
