I have been having a strangling feeling in my throat for around seven months. This came post thyroidectomy and so I thought it had to do with surgery. However, my gastroenterologist did an endoscopy and found bile in my stomach. As I researched this, I immediately thought of my gallbladder removal surgery two years ago. Anyhow, she put me on acid reflux medicines and that do not seem to be helping at all. I have pain in the upper right quadrant of my stomach and this strangling feeling every day. I am taking Carafate four times a day as well. I have just changed my thyroid medicine to Nature Thyroid 2 grains per day. My TSH was at 2 and I know it should be closer to 1. What to do?
