Hello I'm new to this forum.
I have hypothyroidism for 15 years on 125mcg levo. Tsh between 0.003 and 0.08, t4 16 not sure what t3 but told normal.
I also suffer depression, anxiety, migraine and panic attacks on occasion. I take no medication for these. Im always fatigued.
As a teenager I had energy loss and had to lie down shaking.
Years later I started getting these 'attacks' in my home life on occasion anything from everyday for 3 months to 2 years between, but working it happens everday.
I get weakness in my legs, its like wearing moon boots filled with concrete, unbalanced, the more effort i put in the worse it gets. It then affects my energy, I shake, then I get confusion, dizziness, light headed, my speach becomes slurred, its like im drunk, on severe attacks i talk to myself or shout out to 'unhelpful partners' I can't control it. I then become emotional and depressed.
I saw my dr today and he said its gone on so long it must be panic attacks. But i get panic attacks and it doesn't feel like this. Im obviously frustrated after all these years so it must come across panic or depression to the gp.
I have seen endocrinologist and neurologist a couple of times but not when im having an episode. Mri and eec 9 years ago were clear.
Whats wrong with me? Are there recurring illnesses or is it my anxiety/panic?
Thanks for any advice.
