I have hypothyroid for three years, and I am taking Eltroxin 100 mg one tablet daily before two hours to my breakfast. But sometimes I feel pain over and around my thyroid gland. I feel like my neck and vocal throat are squeezed and my voice is dumpy. Please suggest any medicine or treatment for pain and vocal problem.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Your problem may be or may not be related to the thyroid problem. If your thyroid gland is enlarging it may compress your vocal cords and food pipe and cause your problems like vocal throat squeezed, dumpy voice. In this case, you need to get an ultrasound of your neck. This will confirm your diagnosis.
The other possibility is some problem inside your throat like vocal cord nodules, or ulcer, or mass, etc. For this, you need to get upper GI (gastro intestinal tract) endoscopy to know what has happened. I advise first you go for ultrasound of your neck first as it is non-invasive, then revert back to me with the report.
