Im feeling a bit concerned over the last couple of months because of an asthma kind of attack that I had in March which was then repeated in the same week. After the second attack I returned to the doctor who ordered blood tests, chest xrays and an ecg.
This week I had another attack. I wheeze and can't breathe and it lasted for about half an hour. However, both gps I saw have said it isnt asthma but they dont know what it is really. They can hear a loud murmur in my heart and have send out for tests for an echogram? However they dont think that has any bearing on the breathing and are just doing it because they have never heard it before. (I was born with a benign murmur but it was very weak and sometimes undetectable).
I am really really concerned. Im on T3 only. My TSH has slipped back to 7.5 and I am thinking Im feeling tired etc because of that. I am trying to increase my dose gradually at the moment.
My GP has been very considerate about it all and says as I am under alot of stress at the moment (tremendous personal problems more connected to my Daughters health), that I most likely have a late onset seasonal allergy and that my brain sends me into panic if it starts, hence the inability to breathe . I do not feel any pain when this happens, I do not feeling like Im having a heart attack, nor has the chest xray or ecg indicated that.
However I am very scared. I seem to be getting more breathless between the attacks and I have a knee problem that just seems to be more painful and my legs feel weak.
Does anyone think this is related to the thyroid situation? Nobody seems concerned enough but I am very frightened about what is happening. I am not imagining the weak legs. I first felt them coming on before the first asthma type attack happened.
Can anyone help with if they know of these symptoms being thyroid related? Im actually beginning to wonder if I have a neurological situation happening but I do over think these things sometimes.
