    "bubbles" in neck and relation to thyroid problems: even though humans can have swelling in the neck as a sign of a thyroid problem, I don't think there's any relationship here. The human thyroid is in the neck and if it is diseased it swells. This is called a goiter and is a hard swelling, unlike the squishy swelling you're describing. I don't even know if leopard geckos have thyroid glands.

    Cool thanks! I know the you can sometimes feel the thyroid in cats with thyroid disease that is not being treated as well. I'll keep that in mind
