Hi Anybody with Hashimoto thyroiditis feel their throat closes when they lay down?.
Lately as I am falling asleep I get woken by needing to take a big breath, asthough I have stopped breathing obviously my breathing returns to normal once I am awake but it's really interrupting my sleep.
I think my hashimoto was caused or definitely started after a few bouts of tonsillitis in quick succession despite never having had tonsillitis as a child. I feel like my tonsils are rather large despite not having a sore throat any longer.
