Hi, I was just recently diagnosed with severe Graves disease after a thyroid storm. Prior to that, I had a choking incident 2 weeks before where I choked on steak. Then the day before my storm, I choked again. Upon a visit to the ER, I had an ultrasound due to a lump in my neck and it showed a goiter with nodules. I am wondering if this could be why I was choking? and how do I reduce the size? I have been on a liquid only diet since the first incident that I choked and I would like to start on solids again but am nervous. Any advice is appreciated.
