I am 28 years old, always been an anxious person but managed well with yoga and meditation.
Last summer I had terrible insomnia which led to a depressive episode and constant heart palpitations/bounding pulse. I went on antidepressants (which didnt do too much except help me sleep) and saw a therapist, learned a lot about anxiety and made some changes in my life.
April of this year I saw a functional medicine doctor (similar to a naturopath) for my IBS who through testing found I had a parasite, liver clogging and bacteria overgrowth. I stopped the antidepressants and started treating these items naturally through supplements and diet. Since then, I have felt like a whole new person, still an anxious person but overall feeling great.
A week ago a depressive / anxious wave hit me out of nowhere and I haven't been able to shake it. My heart rate is anywhere from 100-130, so nervous about everything I can barely drag myself out of bed and when I eat it goes right through me - diarrhea. I've tried every "relaxing" trick in the book and I get waves of calm but they are very brief moments of relief.
I had my Thyroid tested 1.5 years ago and was told it was "normal", is it possible that things could change or the results weren't accurate?
