Last January I had a bad case of the flu and have not been the same since. After recovering from being sick, my heart was always pounding, I went from 121 lbs to 117 in 1 week and continued to lose weight in the weeks following, I felt extremely anxious (and I am not an anxious person), had loose stool, and always felt lightheaded and shaky. There was one day in February where I now believe I was in thyroid crisis (HR 150, panic attacks, hypertensive, etc) and went to the ER only to be discharged after a chest xray. My symptoms improved throughout the next few months but in May I started to get severe waves of nausea. I never vomited, but the nausea was enough to really debilitate me. I got blood work in June and my TSH was 0.33. I got blood work 3 weeks later to follow up and my TSH was 0.46 (normal range: 0.45-4.5), so my doctor told me I was fine. I feel my hyperthyroid symptoms starting to return now and I dont know what to do. I dont even know if my thyroid really is even hyperactive or all of this is something else! Please help!
