Okay so, I'll start by saying a bit about myself. I'm a soon to be 19 year old female and about a month or 2 months ago I went to the ER because it felt like I was dying (I probably wasn't but anyways). Now I have been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder but that's being controlled with meds. While I was in the hospital, they did a blood test and said it came back abnormal so they ran it again and the doctor there said I was borderline hypothyroid. I went to my family doctor and got blood work and he said my levels were slightly elevated but nothing to be concerned about and ordered another blood test. I'm going this week to get it done.
So the symptoms I'm experiencing come and go like within a few days. I feel like my brain is failing? Like its weak and not functioning correctly. I have been gaining weight and can't seem to lose it. I have extremely sensitive hearing and my vision is becoming more blurred. I'm always tired and am almost always taking a nap throughout the day. It feels like my body is just being pulled to the ground and any action I do causes my heart to race. Now it doesn't help that once I feel weird, my anxiety kicks in but what I'm asking is: Can being borderline hypothyroid cause these symptoms? It's a pretty scary feeling
