I agree with Hippi, mygrljes and Jeannie it needs to be checked. I would start with the PCP checking my thyroid. If your thyroid is enlarged it could cause the symptoms you are having. I have a "goiter" in my thyroid and I experienced what you are describing but once I was back on my meds the swelling came down. If it turns out to be a thyroid problem you may want to get a referral to an Endocrinologist as they specialize in thyroid problems among other things.
Please let us know what the doctor says.
