Hello - since my Christmas incident I have been getting anxiety symptoms and they have started to get a bit worse this last week I never used to get them at home or work but now getting a tight chest, shallow breathing and knot in my guts from waking up to going to bed, not as bad during daylight hours but can't handle meetings at work or travelling very well. Best thing one of the girls at work gave me yesterday was an elastic band to twang on my wrist when I feel the symptoms come on which seems to help a lot!
My normal T4 dose is 125ug, but went down to 100 for 2 weeks from 23/12 and the symptoms I was getting at Christmas went away (I thought I had gone hyper, but may have been anxiety? still trying to get blood results from A&E) and 112.5 for the last two weeks. I feel very tired from 6 or 7pm like I need to up the T4 a bit but scared to because of the anxiety.
Latest bloods from last week; 09/01/2017, TSH 1.25, FT4 19.68, FT3 4.28 -
FT3 is low for me I'm usually around 5.5.
Went to see GP on Tuesday as I was worried that I had lost 5kg in a month (I have been doing elimination diet as well) and got the usual lecture about changing dose and to take some gaviscon if my guts hurt.
Any ideas what this could be? and what I could do?
Could it be the Phosphatidylserine I took last month lowered my cortisol levels?
