    Hi I can totally relate to that I was diagnosed 2 years ago and was in a right mess I had just had a baby (3 months before) and had every symptom going although my Dr insisted i had post natal depression, i had what could only be described as a frog in my throat i continually wanted to swallow as if to rid myself of it but it never went, after being on medication for about 2 weeks I noticed it had gone. Hang in there the medication will make you feel a new person.

    Hi, I suffered with my throat for quite a while before being diagnosed, My throat had a tight dry feeling and was made worse by drinking coffee to the point where i had to stop it all together.

    Also i could no longer shout as it left me hoarse for days if i did.

    One year on from being diagnosed and taking 100mg levothyroxine my throat is a lot better, although shouting is still a gamble as most times i end up feeling horse and dry for a few days afterwards.

    I thought it was just me as i have not heard anyone else mention it on here, so nice to know im not the only one.

    Not so sure about feeling a new woman in my experience!!! but feel better than 12 months ago.
