Hello, so I was diagnosed with over active thyroid about 5 months ago. Finally got an appointment with endocrinologist, who did more blood work and scheduled a thyroid uptake test. The thyroid uptake test came back normal, which seemed to confuse my doctor, but she said thyroid problems fluctuate. So now we are basically at a stand still, and in the meantime I'm freaking out. Around the time I took the uptake test I was feeling good, and stupidly thought maybe they misdiagnosed me and I'm actually fine. Well then it all came back. Horrible anxiety, difficulty sleeping, it feels like my body is being ripped apart when my anxiety is at it's worst. Doctor gave me beta blockers and Ativan, which barely helps. I'm curious if anti depressants would work ? If just to get me through until they actually diagnose my correctly. I had been in anti depressants for a long time, but got off of them about 5 years ago. I always thought about going back on them, but thought I should wait until my endocrinologist figures out wth is wrong with me. Any one have any experience with anti depressants helping the depression part of thyroid problems?
