Pain in wind pipe, bruise, lump in throat, muscle pain in the neck and shoulders, cold, hashimoto's thyroiditis

I m having pain in the front right side of my windpipe, slightly above the thyroid gland . I really feel it when I swallow or yell. It sort of feels like a lump in my throat , but there s no trouble breathing . It started yesterday after a vigorous lap swim, mostly muscle pain in the neck and shoulders, but I was also playing with the baby on the floor and he used my windpipe to pull himself up (which really hurt this spot), and I tend to think the latter was the injury, because the rest of my neck feels fine today. Since then, it feels like a bruise, but there s no visible injury. I ve also had a nasty cold recently (it ended about a week ago), and have had Hashimoto s thyroiditis for almost 18 years. Thank you.

Thanks for writing to us.
The symptoms that you have could be due to thyroid gland abnormalities. An MRI scan of the neck will help in diagnosis.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
