    Choking symptoms

    Hi - I was diagnosed with an underactive Thyroid in March 2012 and am currently on 100mcg of Levothyroxine . However I seem to have a strange symptom at the moment which I am not sure is related to my thyroid problems.

    I seem to be regularly choking on food ! It definately ties in with being diagnosed -and seems to happen quite regularly - does anyone else seem to have this problem ??

    Odd one I know but thought this would be a good place to ask.

    Have just had my bloods done so will have a Docs appt soon so will ask her but wanted to know if it was just me !! haha

    Not choking on food, but a tightness or lump in my throat when I was on thyroxine and my meds were too high, a really uncomfortable feeling. I don't take it anymore, in fact after eating healthy and on lots of vitamins etc etc I'm experimenting whether or not I need meds at all? Of course only a blood test will tell, but right now at the present moment I feel well without them, okay I have ringing in the ears (but so far so good) I feel fine, going for my blood tests in 6 weeks.

    Re: Choking symptoms

    Salta did you have an ultrasound scan of your neck at all to check if there are any nodules or lumps hidden inside?

    No Mike no one examined my neck, but the tightness is gone (I think)? For now at least. I don't have the same symptoms I had with thyroxine, (at least it appears that way to me). I don't suffer from anxiety or stress anymore, but my insomnia is worse than ever. I also have ringing in ears most of the day, low body temperature (which I've just noticed) and the never ending digestive issues of diarrhea. I took probiotics for a while (I can't take them all the time) it helped somewhat. I have to get these issues sorted out with my natureoipath

    I have coked while eating food as it happens sometime when food is enter into a air pipe.When someone is choking with a completely blocked airway, no oxygen can enter the lungs. The brain is extremely sensitive to this lack of oxygen and begins to die within four to six minutes. It is during this time that first aid must take place. Irreversible brain death occurs in as little as 10 minutes.
