I was hoping for some advice or support if possible.
I was diagnosed with Hashimoto in summer 2016. Recently I’ve been getting what I think are the physical signs of panic or anxiety attack (I don’t know if these are one and the same). My heart feels like is racing (but pulse is around 80bmp), trembling, dizzy, shaking hands.
I practice yoga & meditation daily- I feel like the only thing helping me keep it together (if that’s the right expression) is using mindfulness & meditation breathing to focus my breath.
I thought a panic attack was something that came on quick and last for a short period of time, not continued over a series of days. Is that correct? Or is that what is this is?
Not sure if this is relevant, but in case it is, my last results from Feb 2018 were:
TSH 2.9 (ranges 0.4-4)
(My GP doesn’t test for T3)
My next bloods are due in 2weeks and am currently on 75mcg Levothyroxine.
I think that maybe I’m still symptomatic (fatigue/ no energy/ weight issues/ foggy thinking/ extreme heavy periods/ falling hair/ ringing in ears & hearing problems - these are symptoms, aren’t they?!?)
But I’m wondering if this is also a symptom or is it something else?
I would really appreciate if anyone has any advise, similar experiences or wise words...unfortunately (aside from my husband) I’m not finding my family to be hugely supportive so I’m often second guessing how I’m feeling which I don’t think is helping!
Thank you in advance!
