So I’m wondering if my thyroid could be causing ocd or intrusive thoughts? I haven’t got it tested but my family only has depression and that’s it. rolleyes I just feel crazy and uncomfortable. I dealt with depersonalization first and then the thoughts came. But I’ve put off tests but I’m thinking I should.

    It's not a major issue to get your TSH, Free T3 and Free T4 tested.  Even healthy people should have this done at least once a year.  I would ask your doc to do that.  In my family, no one had thyroid disease until much later in life.  My brother had hypothyroidism and I developed Graves.

      I’ve always had hormonal issues but never to this point. I feel like a bad person I guess, my anxiety and depression is out of control. But hard to afford right now especially without insurance.

    I believe there could be a link, Jessica. Search the net and you'll see other complaints about it. A girl here said she lived with fear until she got her thyroid under control. I agree with Linda. Get your thyroid tested and make sure they do all of the tests Linda mentioned.

    Feel better xo

      Thank you so much for responding I was losing hope that there was a connection and I was just a crazy person.

    I should add too: my story 

    So about 8 months ago before my period started I would get really bad anxiety and not be able to sleep but I never really had that problem before. So then right before I started I would get nausea and throw up, and then it happened again expect two days before I started then i went on a trip I can’t remember if it was before or after but I got really sick where I was just couldn’t eat or when I did eat it felt like I had an allergy attack or something?? I went home and everything started feeling weird like hazy? I had a weird pressure in my head and again got worse before my period, and then I felt like I wasn’t real, it really freaked me out and I didn’t know how to cope with it. Then I started getting all these scary thoughts, uncomfortable I don’t even want to say they made me so uncomfortable to the point I started throwing up in the mornings at least two weeks before my before and then three. I’m only 21 but it’s really effected my life and I can’t afford to go to the doctors at the moments but the thoughts are becoming bad and it goes in a cycle and gets worse before my cycle but I still can’t seem to get rid of them. Also I started on 10mg of Celexa about almost 9 weeks ago but I’m still struggling with them as well as anxiety. But is this all hormonal or am I just gonna go crazy? It freaks me out but I don’t know what to do. Then it became maybe I have diabtes, maybe I’m capable of those things, maybe I’m schizophrenic, I can’t handle it though and it’s pretty much ruined everything for me because it’s hard for me to cope. Also it gets worse before my time of month.
