Had total thyroidectomy 3 weeks ago. Is it normal for there to still be pain and discomfort in the neck and throat at this point?

It's Normal.

Pharynx
Three weeks after such a significant surgery, the underlying soft tissues are still healing , so there will be some discomfort or pain. It will take 8-10 weeks to complete healing. If persists or gets worse must see your Surgeon.

Dr. Michael Miller answered:

Itchy throat, mild ear pain and tenderness in the neck lymph. What could these be symptoms of?

Monitoring Centers

Neck-throat
Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph Nodes "taste" lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well.

Dr. Mitchell Cohn answered:

What can cause constant pain inside the front of my neck? Not like a sore throat, but in the neck.

Several poss. causes

Thyroid
Thyroid enlargement, muscle spasm, lymph node swelling, vessel problems, etc. If this is a concern, I would recommend you have your primary care doctor look at it ASAP. If your doctor is an osteopathic physician who can, besides doing all the MD assessments, also look at causes such as claviclular locking, rib or hyoid dysfunction which are common causes of such pain, that would be a bonus.

Is a dry scratchy throat and tighness in the neck that makes me feel bloated after eating normal anxiety?

No

Neck-throat
That could be a sign of food allergy or intolerance. You should keep a food diary of which foods cause this reaction, then sit down with an allergist to review your symptoms and come up with an evaluation plan.
