welt on neck

Hi
I am waiting to see the doc tomorrow for my test results (I know they indicate an overactive thyroid but don't no why) and then am being referred to an endocrinologist.  However this morning I woke up (I don't really sleep !) and on the base of my neck from the middle of the thoard and extending  about 4 inches to the back of the neck and is about 3/4 of an inch in width, I have a raised red welt that is very painful to the touch.  It isn't so much a rash as just one solid red line.  It looks like someone tried to strangle me on one side!  Is this a weird thyroid symptom?
