Well lets see, I have lost alot of weight, i was 114lbs and dropped to 98 within a month, I do not sleep, I have no energy, my mind can not focus and i feel lots of anger and aggrevation towards the smallest thing. I feel like i'm goin crazy but i do not feel depressed of sad or anything although i do cry over nothing sometimes but now mostly it has turned to anger. I feel as if my body is going to shut down. my thrroid is also enlarged.
I'm also having chills, sweats , my muscles hurt. i often get dizzy and the weird thing is my heart rate and blood pressure have been really low. I thought when you were stressed you heart rate and blood pressure went up. I have not seen an endo i just found out friday by my family dr. she told me she was going to do a T3 and T4 and she may have to refer me to an endo.
