Intermittent gagging with hot flashes throughout the day. Family history of thyroid issues. What could the cause be?

The last few weeks in the morning I have a bout of gagging. Sometimes it will happen occasionally during the day. I have not had my thyroid tested in about 10 years but do have a history of family thyroid issues. About the same time the gagging started I started having major hot flashes. Averaging about 3 an hour. I am 50. I know the hot flashes are probably on the on set of menopause , but would the gagging be related to that?

I am not sure what gagging is related to. It is good to get thyroid tested but I would recommend good ENT consult for the same to make sure that there is no problem there. Sometime bad reflux disease can cause throat symptoms too.

Thanks for your question
