Made an interesting discovery chatting w my mum the other day. She went to the gp (this must have been in the early 80s) and said she was having anxiety attacks and he tested her thyroid function and that's how she was diagnosed w Hashi's. I found that so surprising.
I doubt he was thinking of GD (we'll never know as I believe he is no longer living). Any other symptoms would have been pretty non-specific like fatigue.
Idk about you but my gp says anxiety is a hypER symptom. (I know it is also an uat thing.) I can't see someone going to the gp w anxiety as their primary symptom and having a tft as a result.
Any thoughts? Anyone here diagnosed - or even tested - due to anxiety/panic attach?
