Hi all, I was wondering if anyone could help me with the below. I had a weird stomach bacteria that I didn’t want to use antibiotics on and I read that iodine can fix it. I bought lugols 5% and took one drop in the morning with water for about a week. After a week, my stomach completely healed however I got this choking throat feeling sensation in my neck. I googled and read that it could have happened from being iodine deficient and after about a week it went away. About two weeks after that I started taking pre natal vitamins since I am trying to get pregnant and the chocking throat discomfort feeling came back and has not gone away since. It’s been about a month of this everyday and I have no idea what it could be. I am waiting for it to go away and it just hasn’t. Does anyone know what it could be or what I can do to make it go away? I am so scared I permanently damaged my thyroid. I did not take any other supplements with the iodine. Does anyone know if salt water flushes can help? Thank you!!
