I assume you mean you have a "goiter"?  Goiter is simply a swollen, inflamed thyroid.  Some goiters (swollen thyroid) can have nodules on them that can cause issues.  Have you had a thyroid ultra sound?  

Yes, a goiter (and/or nodules) can obstruct breathing.

Do you know if you  have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis? Are you currently on thyroid treatment of any kind? If so, which one(s), at what dosage(s)?  Please post any thyroid related test results you have, and be sure to include reference ranges, since these vary lab to lab and must come from your own report.
