I was tested for thyroid function bc I was complaining of feeling of lump in throat and doc called me back to say thyroid said underactive. Can this be cause of this feeling?
Most definitely. Usually if you have that feeling its ur thyroid. I dont know what else causes that.
it's probably thyroid nodules that are feeling like a lump in your throat.....you need an ultrasound to tell for sure.
Absolutely.

Before starting treatment I had various feelings in my throat - at first it was just a sensation, but not painful like a sore throat from a cold. It was just a sensation that something was there, it felt different and I was aware of it. Since I suffer from allergies and chronic sinus problems, I figured that was the cause. This went on for years before it turned into more of a lump feeling.

Over time, as I got more hypo, it changed and turned into more of a fullness and tight feeling and I would sometimes have a little difficulty swallowing.This also went on for a few years before turning into a lump feeling, and I was still blaming it on allergies.

By the time I found a doctor who took me seriously and started treating me, I felt like there was a lump in my throat - it felt like it was on the inside of my throat, or like something was pushing against it, but I have no visible lump or swelling on my neck.

The feeling almost went all away when I first started treatment. I still had days where I had just a sensation, but it wasn't as bad as feeling like there was a lump in there. After the doctor upped my dose it did go away entirely for a short time. Now it is back, the lump feeling, as well as some other symptoms, so I need another increase.

Is your doctor starting you on medication?
That was one of my main complaints when i went to the dr. I had a lump in my throat kind of feeling and it was driving me nuts. I was not diagnosed being hypo thyroid as of yet and my dr. kept telling me that it could be from stress. It did get better since i am on medication, but once in a while i will still feel it and i sometimes have a tight feeling and feel kind of phlemy and i think it is from my thyroid being enlarged.
I have this feeling as well, though it has improved since being on Levothyroxine. I have had an ultrasound and no nodules either - just goiter. Hope it improves for you,
Angela

No, I can't seem to get anything out of him. He wants me to have more than blood tests but I cannot afford them. I already am hypo. What meds are you on?

Is Levothyroxine cytomel?
Levothyroxine is a T4 replacement. It's the generic for Synthroid. Cytomel is a T3 replacement.
