I've been experiencing this also, mostly in the last couple of months. It comes and goes also, today it feels horrible though, kind of like something is choking me !:eek:

I mentioned this to my doctor and asked if it could be anything to do with the thyroid, she just laughed and said no!

I've been over medicated for a couple of months so I'm hoping that by reducing my dose it may go away...[/QUOTE]
I have had a sore neck for a few years doc's kept telling me it was pulled muscles. It felt like something cold and hard when i swallowed and i began getting horrible coughing attacks and unable to breath, then i was told it was from acid reflux and nothing could be done. Blood pressure stays in 200's/100's and HR 120 and up constantly. I went to a teaching hospital where they specialized in hypertension and when i seen the doctor he touched my neck and i jerked back because it hurt. He immediately ran blood tests and ordered a thyroid ultrasound. The ultra sound showed up a 2.5cm solid mass which is why it feels like i have a adam's apple and i am female. Anything 1cm and above is considered suspicious so they did a biopsy last week and i am waiting to see if it is cancer or not. They got the results Tuesday and didn't call me so i have a horrible feeling because its Thanksgiving and i think if it were good results they would have called me so i didn't worry over the holiday. All i can say is pressure them to do test. My doctor at the teaching hospital is quite upset as this has had to have been there for quite sometime as its one of the slowest growing cancers and for it to be that large someone dropped the ball bigtime and i go to the doctor once a month. DO NOT LET THEM WAVE YOU OFF DEMAND A TEST.
