In my throat following thyroidectomy in July. It started about 2 weeks after surgery. It is literally driving me insane, as it is severe. It's a sensation I can't even describe..... it's a tightening sensation and it feels like I have something stuck in my throat that won't go down 24/7. The discomfort is unbearable and it radiates to my ears. It hasn't gotten any better since it started, going on four months now. Some days are worse than others. The doctor says there is nothing there and Ultrasound showed nothing as well. The truth of the matter is, I have this, whatever is  going on and no one seems to be able to help me. I'm at my wits end!
