Any one else have both thyroid issues and anxiety?
I first found out about my thyroid problems about 1.5 years ago when I went to the ER for chest pains. After all the testing I checked out, and they gave me my blood work results without even going over them with me. A nurse came up to me in private as I was about to leave and told me to look into my thyroid. Luckily my Mom works for Hospice so she knows all the medical terms and numbers and told me my thyroid was way off. I started taking meds but then my Dr took me off of them after about 6 months because my numbers were normal. (Well duh, isn't that what medicine is supposed to do?) I've gotten about 2 or 3 blood tests since then showing my thyroid was off but none of the Dr's seemed to think it was "enough" to put me on my medication. I found a new Dr that is testing me again and I should get my results back in about a week or so. I am also getting a X-Ray of my head/sinuses because I'm having persistent headaches.
I have muscles aches, headaches, head pressure, neck pain, arm & leg aches, foggy head and so on. I also have really bad HA. Looking back I guess I've always had anxiety, but this last year has been terrible.
Any one else have the connection between the two? I'm wondering if my thyroid being left untreated is the reason my anxiety is so bad.
