i think i have a problem, help ?

ive been suffering from panic attacks for a year now and my body is always hot and sweaty and my bowel movements always change.

also, this is the weird part and is why im asking you guys, if i press against my throat i can move some kind of gland around (only on my right side), it seems to change sizes too sometimes.. and this is freaking me out.

ive had a blood test about a year ago and the doc said nothing was too far from normal so i dont know if i should go see him again or what. whats the best plan of action since school is starting and i need to control my panic attacks or i will just skip all my classes...

thanks

Re: i think i have a problem, help ?

When you reffer to panic attacks what exactly do you mean. Do you feel you heart raising and that makes you feel scared or what? I still, once in awhile have those so called panic attacks do to heart beating faster (blood pressure going up) and sometimes choking in my sleep and wake up to and panic. All this is due to Graves Disease.

Definitely go and see him again - get him to do the right tests and find out what your last test was (probably TSH), post the number here along with the range from the lab and you'll get some good advice. It sounds like you have symptoms that could be thyroid related, but the clincher for me, was the comment about how things were not "too far from normal"; the range used for TSH is much too wide, anywhere from .3 - 5.5 when most people with normal thyroid function have a TSH closer to 1.

Ask your doctor for your Free T4 and T3 levels and if you have antibodies; this will help to determine if you're dealing with an autoimmune type of thyroid disease.

I suggest you get yourself checked sound like the symptoms I have but I already know I have Graves, stress sometimes makes them even worse. Hope everything goes well, good luck!
