Clicking when swallowing. Could my hyoid bone be hitting my Thyroid Cartilage? Hyoid bone is very loose too. Causes pain.

In brief: This sounds

more like undiagnosed TMJ problem. Need to see a ENT specialist to really know for sure or oral surgeon.

In brief: Hyoid click

Doubtful- the clicking is common with a lax hyoid and as long as your thyroid is normal in size and shape, do not panic.
Good idea to make an appointment for an ultrasound of the thyrod and a medical exam.
