I have been supplementing for Hashimoto's for many years (30+) first with Synthroid, then Armour, Westhroid, now compounded Armour. March 1 I began 12.5 m AM & PM of Luguls. I went through several events of emotional melt-down but was doing ok. Then, 3 days ago I began to feel stiff soreness down each side of my neck, from jawline to shoulder on each side. My throat feels swollen and tender. Swallowing is somewhat forced, as if there is a lump. I have had no Lugols since Thursday evening.
What's happening? Is is likely that the Iodine is causing my thyroid to swell?
