I sure hope your doctor has run an antibodies test to determine if you have Hashimoto's or Graves? Any symptoms other than difficulty swallowing? Also, what are your FT3 and FT4 levels.

I have a nodular thyroid. My isthmus is swollen, making it hard to swallow. I'm on thyroid hormone for my Hashimoto's. Are you taking anything?

Also, 200 mcg Selenium once a day helps with the swelling.
