I am a 25 years old female. I am suffering from breathlessness and cough since several months. Finally, I consulted a GP 20 days ago and had several tests done. They are TSH, lipid profile, CBP, chest x-ray, lung function test, liver and kidney functioning, blood sugar, urine test and ECG. All the reports came back normal except that I have vitamin D, B12 deficiency and low levels of iron. I have hypothyroidism, for which I took ayurveda medicine for three months.
Also, I have a weird problem. Whenever I bend my head backwards and try to swallow my throat gets severely irritated and gets blocked. Then, I have to cough to clear up. Otherwise, while swallowing with my head backwards I feel like I am losing consciousness. I also feel that there is something stuck in between my throat while I swallow anything. Whenever I cough I could be able to take air inside at a time and breathlessness gets normal and I gain start to feel breathlessness after some time. My doctor has prescribed Montek-LC saying that it could be due to allergy. I took Montek-LC for two weeks, but still did not find any improvement in breathing problem. Also my doctor had advised me to stop taking ayurveda medicine as it causes these symptoms. I started taking Thyronorm 25 mcg. Is there any relation between my breathlessness and trouble to swallow? Please advise me.
