Hello! For the past week or 2 I have had a very sharp pain on the left side of my throat with pain running up to my ear. I is very painful when I swallow. I have a non productive cough that is more annoying than anything else. There are no other "cold" symptoms like fever, sneezing runny nose etc. I was wondering if it could be thyroid related? I was told @ a recent Drs visit my thyroid felt enlarged and my TSH is 4.36. Does anyone have the same issues?
