    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    COULD YOU HAVE PTSD ot hypothyroid
    startwynkles59 posted:
    I have both asthma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. When I get too stressed, I can get either or both to manifest together or one or the other. I talked to both my MD and my mental health providers. I have clonazepam to take when my throat feels like it is closing up and I know it is not asthma. Also, people with hypothyroid (I have it too) will have the throat problem. Trying to get your respiratory therapist's help co-ordinated with who ever helps you with your stress management to create a plan to put into place to figure out what exactly is causing your throat totighten up.
