Re: Depression, Anxiety, Thyroid, Cymbalta??
Your TSH is sitting in the low end of normal, most likely bordering on hyperthyriod. I would go back to your doctor and request more blood tests (FREE T4 & T3), as you may have an autoimmune disorder called Graves' disease, causing symptoms such as depression or anxiety.
I was diagnosed with Graves' in 2001, and treated with radioactive iodine in January '02. It took a very long time for me to feel the way I used to(18 to 24 months), and a couple times during this period I tried to wean off my AD's to no avail. I did this on my own only to learn I shouldn't stop them as long as my thyriod was so out of wack.
Getting the proper diagnosis is key. If you say you are expiriencing hyper symptoms, "The Thyriod Solution" by Ridha Arem, M.D. may be a good read. Learning as much as you can about your illness is the best way to work hand in hand with your doctor. Not only that, you Know how you feel, and just because your blood results say normal doesn't mean YOU are at YOUR OPTIMAL levels for YOU.
Though I have been treated for thyriod disease, I still battle depression. But that is me and we are all induvidual. If your doctor won't do additional testing on you, I'd seek a second opinion, or ask to be referred to an endocronalogist.
