thyroid, thyroiditis, hyperthyroidism, short of breath, food stuck in throat, swelling?

I am a 24 year old woman. I was considerably healthy. Ive had asthma since birth.
In June i noticed my throat swelling up, or inflammation. I couldn’t swallow pills or eat because food would get caught in my throat.
This is now October. Within these four months I have been to an allergist im allergic to the world but the medicines they gave me do not work.

i have had a ultrasound of my thyroid and i have nodules. I have had a needle biopsy aspiration. They were normal, but has features of Hashimoto’s disease. Doctors did nothing. I have had a thyroid scan and uptake and the results are complicated long story short nothing big enough to give me anything. I am stressing out now. Sometimes my thyroid blood work will be normal, and when i stopped my birth control, they were abnormal. Now they are normal again.They think its hyperthyroid but they arent doing anything

I have seen a cardiologist for my heart problems , At first they wanted to chuck it up to stress but my white blood cells are high and my liver tests are a little off but no one is doing anything. Ive lost so much weight because i cant really eat. Doc has put me on propranolol for my heart but that makes my asthma act up. before they just put me on valium. I have been to the ER twice within the last month. I feel I am getting the run around can anyone help?

Recent findings. I seen an ENT. He thinks it is thyroiditis, but they dont know what kind yet. He wants me to get a Baruim x-ray done, im scared about that. I don’t know why he wants me to get that done.
Also, get a ct scan of my sinuses. What does thyroid have anything to do with sinuses? I am confused.

-mucus in throat but never goes anywhere
-ear pain with jaw pain
-swollen glands, swollen throat tightness
trouble speaking

short of breath

-more i cant think of as the moment

    Yes, all these symptoms of a thyroid imbalance. Allergies or more commonly food intolerance are symptoms of a thyroid imbalance which causes post nasal drip and excessive mucus. My mother had terrible 24/7 post nasal drip with hashimoto’s. So, she cut out all dairy (which caused an immediate mucus reaction), went on a candida diet for 2 months (no sugars or white flour etc) and took an anti fungal – Pau D’Arco daily. After two months, the post nasal drip is 80% better! She can now have a bit of dairy with no reaction.

    There are various reasons for thyroiditis
    >>>http://www.stopthethyroidmadness.com/thyroiditis/

    As you can see, hashimoto’s thyroiditis (autoimmune hypothyroidism) is the most common of all the thyroiditis conditions. This autoimmune disease swings between hyper and hypo symptoms and the TSH levels can be up one minute down the next or come back "normal". The tests to confirm an autoimmune disease – anti TPO (thyroid peroxidase) and TgAb (thyroglobulin). TPO is elevated more so in hashimoto’s thyroiditis 90% compared to 64% with Graves Disease (autoimmune hyperthyroidism).

    There are 5 types of white blood cells. Eosinophils are higher due to allergies or parasites. Overall high white cell count can be from various conditions as listed
    >>>http://www.buzzle.com/articles/high-white-blood-cell-count.html

    If your thyroid antibodies do come back higher than normal, there are ways to lower them. Selenium (4 brazil nuts) = 200mcg a day has shown to lower TPO antibodies up to 40% in 3 months, gluten free diet "…researchers found that…organ-specific autoantibodies (i.e., thyroid antibodies) — will disappear after 3 to 6 months of a gluten-free diet."

    Commonly seen deficiencies with a thyroid condition include vitamin B12 deficiency, iron, (both B12 and iron deficiencie cause palpitations), vitamin D and calcium (too low a calcium level can also cause palpitations), magnesium, potassium, low cortisol levels.

    As for urine, the most common reason is excess phosphate. To test for this, take a small sample of your urine and drop a bit of acetic acid (vinegar) in to it. If it is phosphates, the urine will become clear immediately. Other reasons listed on this link >>>http://www.helium.com/items/707936-cloudy-urine-when-to-worry
