I'm 16 years old and have been diagnosed for just over a year with with hashimotos (hypo & hyper thyroid) and take 75mg of levothyroxine.
I've noticed more recently within the last few months or so that my anxiety has shot though the roof. before I was diagnosed I had no anxiety at all and was outgoing but now I get nervous all the time, don't want to go out or do certain things as I get extremely nervous. I get shortness of breath and my heart feels like it's racing even if I'm sitting down doing nothing (especially if I'm worrying). I haven't had a full blown panic attack that I know of.
I don't quite know what to do, I still haven't got my head around all of this thyroid-ness (should I get some books [any recommended?] as I still don't really understand) I don't know where to turn to but this anxiety is especially doing my head in I can't carry on like this it's ridiculous, normal day to day things worry me and I don't know why! it's got a lot worse lately.
(my medication is at the right dose according to my last check up with the endo)
any help or advice would be great, I can't just blurt all this out to a friend or my mum, I know they'll understand but they won't really understand as they can't relate, they're solution is to not worry and take a deep breath (not very useful haha)
