Is this just caused by neck fat?

Recently have the feeling of my throat being constricted when I'm tilting my neck down.

Had a feel round my throat area and can definitely pinch an inch (or two) of fat especially at the bottom of the neck.

Could the constricted feeling be linked to the excess fat?

No problems swallowing but do quite often have a sore tongue

Could it be a goitre? (Swelling around the thyroid)

Might be worth going to your GP to get it checked.

I have had thyroid bloods done early this year and were all normal

Would a goitre be picked up by blood test?

Not all goitres are associated with abnormal thyroid function tests- really would need to have neck examined
