Id like some advice for my daughter please. She is 26 years old and like me, suffers with anxiety. My cure for the anxiety was once I started taking thyroid medication. I clearly had an underlying propensity to hypothyroidism but my TSH was always in range.
My daughter is very tiny regardless of how much she eats, always has been. She is very anxious and hyper and equally very slow depressed sometimes. We have often wondered about bipolar. She is on medication for depression but still gets some symptoms, most of the time.
She will lay in bed sometimes shaking and shivering. She is anxious and she keeps feeling sick.
As a family we have auto immune diseases which I am only beginning to understand.
I tested my own antibodies and they are extremely high indicating Hashimotos thyroiditis.
My daughter has had her thyroid tested and the results seem to not be indicating this but I can't bear to see her suffer. Is it possible she has high antibodies also and that she could be concealing hyperthyroidism at the moment. If she could only get the correct treatment it could change her life as it did mine with hypothyroidism.
Is it worth her asking to be tested again and that the doctor considers her condition to be bordering on hyperthyroidism? She has an appointment on Monday.
