I've been apart of this group for a few months and notice that everyone has had different experiences with hypothyroidism. My doctor never told me anything about it other than it can create some anxiety so joining this has been an eye opener. I'm really curious as to what is considered normal symptoms?
Last year, I thought I was going insane. I had increased anxiety to where I was having multiple panic attacks a day. My body felt heavy and weak and I was dizzy (still am). I also have numbness in my forearms and shins. I went to doc who did blood work and found low thyroid. She gave me levothyroxine .5mg and my levels are back to normal. The anxiety has decreased but if I miss a dose or two, I pay for it. And the rest of my symptoms are still there with intermittent numbness, body fatigue, (I've been to 3 neurologists, have had MRIs out the butt, nerve tests, etc..) no one can find out what's wrong. But it all started same time they found my thyroid was low.
I read a post on here and got curious so I looked at my blood work and it only showed TSH. I didn't see anything about T3 or T4 that everyone talks about.
Can someone tell me what the heck I should expect? Or what they go through? Is it possible to have symptoms even on medication that keeps levels steady? I'm so confused and my doctor is no help and I have no clue what to believe when I google.
