At the beginning of January of this year I started feeling a bit off. Nothing I could really put my finger on. I thought it was the flu that wouldn't go away. I started getting panic attacks something I hadn't had for about 10 years. I went to my doctor at the beginning of February & she gave me a prescription for Valium to take when I was getting an attack. A few weeks later I started getting extreme attacks where my heart was racing, I was shaking, was having trouble thinking with a strange feeling in my head and would be very, very anxious. I would have trouble swallowing which really scares me. I was also going to the bathroom 2, 3, & even 4 times a day. After 3 or 4 of these attacks I went to see my doctor again and she checked me over and send me for blood tests. She called me in a week later and said it looks as though I had an over-active thyroid. The next day I had attack so bad I ended up going to Emergency. The doctor there precribed me some beta-blockers for my racing heart. I seem to get these attacks first thing in the morning & just before supper. Some days I get nothing but still don't feel very well. The attacks last for an hour or two & really terrify me. I have an appointment with an Endocrinologist on Tuesday & I'm hoping he can solve this problem.
I'm wondering if anyone here has felt the way I have & if they've had in luck getting help.
Thanks for listening.
