For a very long time I have suffered with most of the symptoms of hypothyroidism and only last week I was diagnosed with my doctor. Long story short over recent months I would have days where I was struggling to take a deep breath. Last Sunday I woke up and experienced this breathing issue all day. Monday morning I saw my GP who then told me some recent blood tests suggest my thyroid is lazy. My GP prescribed diazepam to calm me down as the breathing problems had caused to go into a panic state. Today over a week later I am still experiencing breathing issues and feel that I cannot get a deep breath. Can someone please tell me is this something to worry about. I feel desperate for help..
