I have suffered from High Anxiety, Panic with the underactive thyroid. Been treated with 100mcg of thyroxine for most of the time, but was referred to specialist (nhs) probably a year or so back. Put on added 10mcg of Liothyronine, but not made any difference. Been suffering horrible added anxiety, persistant cough, loss of voice, sore chest and throat for three months and eye problems. Seen specialist who was rude and tried to discharge me saying "he did not know how to treat me and could do no more". I was really shocked and upset at his manner and did not feel that we had tried other avenues. I said I thought he was the expert, but he just kept saying he did not know what to do! I mentioned the alternative thyroid treatment Armour and he just said "if thats what you want, try that" and hastily wrote a presciption for it! I had to try to extract information as to how to take it and he was most unhelpful. Was in tears when I came out and felt I should report him..... I am left unsure what to do and if stopping the thyroxine is correct? Help!
