GI problem seem cause my sore throat, throat clearing, feeling of lump in throat, difficulty breathing & swallow. Can it cause severe chest pain too?

Yes, reflux can: Cause significant chest pain. In fact that is the origin of the term heartburn. On the other hand, not all chest pain in people with GERD is GI in origin. If in doubt, go to ER or an urgent care, if this is unlike anything you've experienced before and is accompanied by shortness of breath, cardiac issues need to be checked for and ruled out. ...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.

It actually feels as though there is a lump in my throat. It hurts to swallow, but not sore throat hurt.  What could be the cause?

Reflux: One of the most common reasons my patients complain of this symptom is acid reflux. A small bit of acid can come up when you lie flat and it causes swelling of the larynx. This causes the feeling that something is stuck in your throat. Avoid -spicy foods, eating late a night, acid foods. Try Prilosec otc for a couple of weeks and if it doesn't get better see an ent. ...Read more
