Unhappy Hyperthyroidism/hypo misdiagnosed as anixiety????

Hi!!! I'm a healthy 20yr old 155lb male
Ok so for the past year and 3 months I've had MASSIVE brain fog and latley within the past 3months I've been getting néw terrible symptoms
first my heart started having these weird beats I went to my dr and he diagnosed me with high BP!!!!!
High bloodpressure at 20years old very skinny with high blood pressure???
He put me on 25mg of metropolol
my BP can go from normal readings of 125/78 with a pulse of 68 to spiking of 175/104 with a pulse of 130 even after I take my medication!
this happend to me today!!!!
I've been to the hospital 4times in the past 3 months for
MAJOR palpatations , chest pain , Numb fingers ,tingling fingers

I CONSTANTLY have these problems as well on a 24/7 period
dizzyness when walking
major fatigue (I lay in bed all day everyday now)
my hands and feet become FREEZING!!!! ICE cold for no reason all the time
trembling hands
neck pains in front and Back (especaily the front)
loss of touch in arms hands and feet sometimes
if my feet arnt cold there SUPER CLAMY AND SWEATY!!!!
Major head pressure
terrible terrible 24/7 airhunger
mouth is ALWAYS dry no matter if I've had an IV or I'm drinking water
witch I do all the time

it used to be better butnits getting
progressivley worse!
I can't live like this!!
It's eating away at me!
I lay awake every night now
bcs I can't sleep
it's driving me mad!

My most recent visit to ER was the same
EKG-normal
chest Xray-normal
bloodwork-normal

my doctor did say my thyroid was a bit high
I think he said .88 or something like that he said since I've been here so much latley he said maybe an endocrineologist

I pray everyday as well as my fiancé does

they think I need to be on a 20mg of Anti depressiants now!!

I've never been depressed in my life I used to be captain of my
highschool golf team
I went camping all the time

religiously
take my vitamins everyday

this is takin such a dramatic toll on my life I've thought about
suicide more in the past 3months than I ever have in my life....
Please dint say only depressed people say that
yes I'm depressed but only becuse I feel like this 24/7 all day everyday!!!!

Please

Forrest,

I don't think you have depression, you just said it started 3 months ago. Depression is not like that. You need to get your Thyroid blood work report before anything, a little high he says? that's all? what did you do for that?
Take it easy and believe me you will get over this. It will just take some time and you need to educate yourself more about Thyroid, just get the report as a first step.
Good luck
Michael

Re: Hyperthyroidism/hypo misdiagnosed as anixiety????

TSH and FT4 and FT3 for a start, get the report. It's very improtant Forrest!!!
You need to monitor your food too, I also have High BP and high heart rate. Some food, especially junk food, sends both to the sky . But I like junk food, like many people if not all lol

Re: Hyperthyroidism/hypo misdiagnosed as anixiety????

It's ok Forrest, just get the report and as I said monitor your food & bp. Get a decent Omron cuff bp machine, take your bp 3-4 times daily and keep a record.
You can't do much unless you get the report as a start!!!
Good luck
Michael

Re: Hyperthyroidism/hypo misdiagnosed as anixiety????

Yes Forrest frontal neck pain might be related to the thyroid problem, when will you get this report? have you had your thryoid antibodies tested too?

Re: Hyperthyroidism/hypo misdiagnosed as anixiety????

Ok....been there done all that!! haha in my early 20's I was put on prozac with same symptoms only I was a way hyper-pretty happy girl. Depression I thought what?? Anyway, I could type my whole life story but I will try to keep it short and sweet. Sounds like your body is totally malfunctioning due to stress and nutrition. The very first thing you need to do is order norwegian seaweed (kelp) < edited > start taking the kelp as much as you feel you need and as much as it recommends to calm your thyroid. It contains many trace minerals and vitamins. In addition to this you need a B-complex (-get the one for stress I think its called B-Stress complex or something to that affect.) Prayer and meditation are wonderful and speaking your mind. Make sure not to internalize your feelings as this really affects the glandular system (mainly the thyroid). I treated my thyroid naturally this way along with some other herbal combinations. One of which I am taking now by NOW products called "Thyroid Energy" very good. Have them check your heart too and sugar levels to rule these things out! Good Luck and God Bless!
