Hi, back in March I was prepping for exams and my routine was to grab a coffee and hit the books.After about a week I was getting issues where I became extremely fatigued, muscle aches(thigh and shoulders particularly) a shortness of breath and restlessness when it came to bedtime.
I googled my symptoms at the time and read about hyperthyroidism and checked a blood test I had the previous summer, here are the results with the free t4 being slightly elevated.
I considered what I was taking at the time, ashwagandha, propranolol, aniracetam and the coffee (which I found out had a whopping 400mg of caffeine) and stopped taking them.I felt better within a few days barring the odd day.
I felt a repeat of the symptoms this weekend just gone, I had been out and drank a lot of coffee on the friday (too much as I felt anxious) I had magnesium and zinc before bed and also had b-complex on the saturday morning (first time in a while)
Do my symptoms sound like hyperthyroidism and could this be interpreted from my tests? Is it possible I could get these symptoms now and then for a few days as my thyroid levels are elevated from a supplement or caffeine? Could something else cause this, stress or even excessive exercise?
Sorry for the long post.
