heterogeneous echotexure hypervascular thyroid

can someone please help me? my  i'm have hashimoto's and am on levothyroxine 50mcg. just had an US and it says my thyroid is heterogeneous echotexure hypervascular, no nodules. my labs are normal except thyroxine is @ 6.1 ug/dL.  i suffer from extreme exhaustion, dry skin, very brittle nails and tightness around my throat . i'm frightened because on occasion it feels like my throat is closing.  the PA that i saw is relatively new and had a great deal of difficulty ordering the proper labs for me and seems like she's in way over her head with my issues. she referred me to an endo Dr. but i can't get an appt till the end of july.
the tightness in my throat seem as if it's getting worse daily. can i afford to wait?  i don't even know if the ER would help me unless my airway in in danger of obstruction? please help. i'm soo scared.

Sounds like acute inflammation. Consult with doc about  taking anti-inflammatory medicine
