I recently had my thyroid checked and it was at 8.58. I have been complaining to doctor for almost two years that I have had this fullness feeling in my neck. Well since the first time I noticed it almost two years ago it has gradually gotten worse. It is like there is a fullness in my neck following my up into my ears. Now there has been pain and also pain in my ears. I have went in for ear infections but good there. I recently had ultrasound for goiters but good there. Is this common and will it go away if my levels get better? I am just sick of the pain/fullness and can't really take it anymore. Also my ears sometime swell. New update- I saw an ENT last month and after an hour of telling me in a round about way that I was crazy he did a throat scope. Apparently the back/base of my tongue/throat is hugely swollen. He was pretty concerned and performed a laryngoscopy a couple of weeks ago. They took samples and biopsy came back ok. So NOW he says he's not sure why my throat is swollen. He says it's completely abnormal but "hey, have a good day". What the **** do I do now?????? I am so lost. Could it be thyroid or is it something else. I don't really know where to post about it. I have the other joint aches/pains, chest pain when laying down, muscle weakness and fatigue. I could name more but you all get it, lol. Thanks for any help or just listening to me.

I wonder if it's related to acid reflux? Do you get acid reflux?
If so, then get it checked out by a gastroenterologist.

The swelling could be due to your high thyroid levels also. Once the level becomes normal you may feel better.

No acid reflux. I've been seeing gastrointestinal doctor too for while now. I've been having the fullness & problems well before thyroid problem. I dunno

It might be silent reflux. Have you had a barium swallow or endoscopy done?
