I have just been diagnosed with subclinical Hypothyroidism. (If this is mild then the full on would kill me!) Due to ongoing changes with my surgeries appointment system, the best I could get to discus my blood results was a phone consultation with a Doctor I don't know. So I wrote out all my symptoms in a letter to him. Firstly I felt like a child being talked to by the headmaster! Horrible experience. But he straight out told me that my anxiety can not be related to hypothyroidism. But I feel like I know it is! And I've read that other people have anxiety with being hypo. Am I actually going mad? Does anyone else suffer from anxiety with it? I'm being started on a low dose of Thyroxine so at least I'm getting somewhere... Thank you.
