In brief: The

The phlegm/mucous in your throat is more likely due to allergies, however you need immediate care for your thyroid issue as this may be playing a role even though the symptoms you described are not typical of follicular lesions.
First of all, contact your local county hospital for free or low cost care. You can also ask to speak to a social worker for help in getting medical care. In the meantime take a daily antihistamine like Claritin or alavert. Also try Mucinex (guaifenesin) to help loosen the phlegm. Best of luck.
