Suggest medication for a lump in the throat

hello: could going from 25mg s to 50 mg s of Synthroid have an effect on your body? if so what could the symptoms include? I have felt like there has been a lump in my throat for a couple of months. I already take Dexilant for acid reflux however, this is not going away and actually getting worse. Would getting a throat scope be advisable?
