    I started with panic attacks in May of this year. Then I had tremors, weight loss, feeling very irritable, eating everything in sight, heart palpitations. Finally I had blood tests, and had an over active thyroid which is now being treated properly.

    Don't worry, but make sure you get the proper blood tests, and don't be "fobbed off" if you're not happy.

    Let me know how you get on.

      Yes, it does make you feel awful, I was so hyper, everyone thought I was on speed !! Hopefully the blood tests will show an over active thyroid cause you've got exactly the same symptoms as I had. Even though I had a goitre in my neck my consultant said I didn't need a scan as he could see  right away what the problem was.

      I am now on Carbimazole which is a thyroid drug to bring my levels down which I hate taking but it seems to be working. I also take 20mg of Goji Berry juice per day to help with my eyes, and eat 2 brazil nuts per day which are a very rich source of selenium which will help with the thyroid.

      I know it's scary, but keep on pushing for the appointments cause the sooner you get it sorted, the sooner you can start the treatment.

      If I can help with anything else, just let me know.
