I was wondering if anyone could help, or whether they have experienced anything similar. As my T4 levels have come down and are now close to normal, I have had more energy and feel physically much better. Not back to my old self yet, but getting there. But I still have that inner tremor, especially when I wake up at night, I am trembling and it often stops me sleeping. However, my biggest problem is during the day when I am left with a crippling nervousness and fear. I work with horses and used to be brave. I could handle anything and break in youngsters etc. But now I'm terrified. I hide it from my clients except that I shake when I am exerting myself physically or if I am stressed mentally. I am in the process of breaking in my lovely young horse and she's very willful and can be very naughty. I try to just carry on but afterwards I go inside and could cry. I am just totally overwhelmed by things which would not have worried me before I became hyperthyroid. I am wondering why my mental state has not improved like my physical state and whether I will ever feel normal again. I am also overwhelmed by social situations, even close family. Will it ever get better?
