Def sounds like a possible goiter to me or even a nodule but I can tell you that I personally had a goiter (all that means is your thyroid is enlarged/swollen). I got these funny feelings in my throat & like you I had discomfort when swallowing, not really pain. It went away after being prescribed some thyroid hormone replacement. Have you been checked for thyroid problems? I think you should be, if not? If you are though I would highly recommend getting Free T3 & Free T4 tested along with your TSH. Most dr's only test TSH so you will have to specifically ask/find a dr willing to test the free's.
My first clue was 0 energy, unable to get well or feel well - continued sinus infections, no sex drive, looking like crap, feeling worse.
I had something like what you describe in Nov. Painful swallowing like something was choking me. It freaked me out. It was 2-3 days before my neck CT scan to check on nodules found in an US - which came back normal. My DR felt it and said my thyroid was not enlarged. It felt better in 2 days on it's own. If it lasts past Friday I'd make an appt and get it checked out.
thyroid hasn't been checked for a while and that link? wow, like most of it applies. i've been attributing a lot of it to having had HJ last year (and a transfusion), but now I think back and most of the symptoms were there before even getting pg.
I've got an actual sore throat now. Friday I was still feeling tender. I can remember being in my dh's car with a hooded sweatshirt on and feeling like it was choking me. I'm calling tomorrow
