    Taking Fastin when you have hypothyroidism

    I have been trying to lose weight but have had no luck until I tried Body By Vi (the weightloss shakes) and the prescribed drug Fastin to help me lose weight. I have been doing the shakes 2 to 1 times a day since the middle of December 2011 and started taking Fastin in late February 2012. I have lost 30 lbs and was feeling great, but then last Friday, March 23rd, I feel full in my throat, like a could throw up when I swallow. Does anyone have any answers for these symptoms, etc? I could possibly have a goiter. Not for sure... Thank you for any medical advice.
