See a doctor: Hi. That sounds uncomfortable and bothersome! Have you had any other symptoms? Fevers? Loss of appetite? Weight loss? Feeling crummy? We deliberately make you hyperthyroid after treatment for thyroid cancer. If your thyroid dose makes you symptomatic, ask your endocrinologist if trying a slightly lower dose would be OK. But see a doctor to make sure this isn't serious. Good luck!
