I have not been to the doctor specifically for the pain when inhaling, but I have had my thyroid checked and I have been diagnosed with Hashimoto's. Currently, my thyroid is working normally, but I have a 1cm nodule on my thyroid, and my TPOAb's came back extremely high (hence the Hashimoto diagnosis).
I know that this may sound strange, but I'm starting to believe that the pain when inhaling is related to trapped gas. I had the pain almost all day yesterday in the right side of my neck, but by the end of the day it had moved completely down to the lower part of my throat. Today it's completely gone. I've been getting them on and off for months.
Out of curiosity, have you ever been on the Nutrisystem diet? I can't remember for sure, but I think mine started soon after getting on that diet.
PS Forgot to mention that I don't have a cough associated with the pain.
