Thyroid bone feels strained(no pain) on the left side. Neck muscle tight also. Im constantly clearing my throat, after i clear it feels better. Help?

Confused: There is no thyroid bone. Your thyroid is a soft tissue organ located in front of your windpipe, just below the adams apple. It is unusual for it to hurt. There are many muscles in the neck that can be strained and hurt temporarily. However these should have nothing to do with the need to clear your throat. Many of your symptoms sound like they are anxiety related. ...Read more

I have a 1.4cm nodule on my right lobe. I've been clearing my throat for several days. But I've been spitting out mucus. Is that thyroid related?

I have a 1.4cm nodule on my right lobe. I've been clearing my throat for several days. But I've been spitting out mucus. Is that thyroid related?

No: Small thyroid nodules do not cause any physical pain or sensory changes. Frequent throat clearing is due to a sensation of "globus" usually related to acid reflux or sometimes post nasal drip. Based on the ata 2009 guidelines, this nodule should be evaluated with a fine needle aspiration (biopsy). ...Read more

Low TSH: The TSH is low. That would imply that your FT4 is high (needs to be measured), which would imply that your levothyroxine dose is too high, or your thyroid is producing some hormone on top of what you are taking in the pill. You and your doctor (perhaps with help of an Endocrinologist) need to figure this out. Long term, it is not healthy to be this way. Bone loss, stress on the heart. ...Read more

I have hypothyroidism and recently have the sensation of something being stuck in my throat constantly, could this be related to my thyroid? Or

I have hypothyroidism and recently have the sensation of something being stuck in my throat constantly, could this be related to my thyroid? Or

It might be: thyroid enlargement, but that is unlikely while you are on replacement. You should NOT, however, be taking Cytomel (liothyronine) which is T3, acts only for several hours, causes excessive thyroid hormone levels, and can't be measured with standard thyroid testing. Use the brand name T4 replacement, such as tirosint, only and make sure your levels are normal. Consider thyroid ultrasound if concerned. ...Read more
