High on Water
If the swollen throat is actually from your thyroid, I can attest to having the same problem during the first two months of Iodine
supplementation. (I was always able to equate needing to have my thyroid meds "upped" in my past when my thyroid started to enlarge again....
During the first two months of Iodine
therapy, my thyroid, AND my "cold" spells, were on and off. Sometimes, the enlarged thyroid (with its highly annoying pressure where it felt like the skin stuck to the back of my throat whenever I swallowed) was with me for a week at a time, and then reduce in size again. After two weeks of Iodine
supplementation, I awoke with hyPERthyroid symptoms, and started taking my thyroid meds (which were at 88mcg) at HALF size. Three weeks after THAT (on March 1), I stopped taking the meds altogether!
My thyroid now stays
at a nice, small, comfortable size. And my energy is at a nice consistent level, AND, I don't get ice-cold to my very core anymore. My feet NEVER get cold anymore!
It is very NICE!
