Can enlarged thyroid cause throat clearing and excess sputum feeling?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Murray Grossan
72 years experience in ENT and Head and Neck Surgery
Throat Clearing: Unless the thyroid is asymmetric or huge, would not cause throat clearing. Chronic fatigue and throat clearing, rule out: acid reflux with reduced sleep post nasal drip due to chronic sinusitis generalized aching: consider gum disease or sinus disease. Sinusitis: see www.Grossaninstitute.Com.

Because thyroid: hormone has a very long half-life, it's levels generally don't "fluctuate". No, they won't cause those symptoms.
