Tightness in throat?
I have no idea what this is.  It started about a week ago.  I have a sensation almost like someone has a hand wrapped around my throat.  Could this be a thyroid issue?  Any input?  Thanks!

Yes, it can be thyroid related. Get a thryoid ultrasound. Also, do you have any labwork? FT3, FT4, TPOab, TGab, TSI?

Any thyroid-related health concerns? Fatigue, depression, anxiety, chest pain, rapid heart rate, constipation, GERD, heartburn, low vitamins, muscle cramping, leg pain, foot pain, eye and ear pain or ear ringing, brain fog, dry  skin, hair loss, sleep loss...

I havent had any workups done.  I have been afraid to call my doctor because I didnt know how to explain how I have been feeling.  I will call on Monday for sure.  I have had bouts of fatigue, depression, anxiety, brain fog,  Hard to say about the chest pain and heart rate as I am recovering from heart surgery.

I have had the feeling of 'someone having their hands around my throat" and it was a thyroid issue.
I also felt uncomfortable wearing a gold chain around my neck or wearing jumpers with a roll neck or anything covering my neck.
After treatment, I no longer have that problem.

I would be going to the Doc and asking for a thyroid panel to be done.
Let us know how you go and good luck :o)

I have the tightness in my throat, it also seems like it goes into my sinuses and face. I do have GERD and some of those other symptoms but they did a thyroid test and said it was fine..maybe I should be getting another one done.
