I had always mildly elevated TSH levels. Betweek 3 & 5.
My doctor gave me some L-Thyroxine to test things.
I used to lie in bed and pretty and do very little as I was tired all day and was tired of that.
Then I decided to take L-Thyroxin on thursday... I just took one 75mcg tablet... and woke up with panic attacks & severe irritability the next day. It started in the morning and is worst in the evening and I experience extreme panic attacks for like 5-6 hours in the evening and not get exhausted.... However my temperature is still very low and and my pulse is normal.
Is this some sort of paradox reaction? I took hydrocortisone, thinking maybe my adrenals can't handle the increase in thyroid hormone but that doesn't help.
I took the 75mcg tablet on thursday however I still experience severe panic attacks & the last 2 days I've even had insomnia and pretty much haven't slept... like it got even worse the last few days.
I'm normally totally exhausted and lie there for 16 hours before I can do anything... but now I am even more exhausted because I am just extremely wired and panicky & irritable but now my brain is in panic mode and doesn't shut off. But my temperature is not up nor do I have a higher heart rate.
Btw. My T3 levels are always on the higher end of the spectrum.
I am having some atypical hyperthyroid reaction?
