I am 23 yr. old female and have Hyperthyroidism
About 2 months ago my husband was out of town and I put my children to bed. I felt perfectly fine. About 3am I woke up to my heart pounding out of my chest, sweating bullets and felt so much anxiety. I have been suffering from anxiety attacks since I can remember, but this felt very different. I almost called 911 but instead called my mother who thought I was crazy. I went to the dr that morning and he ordered some lab work but wrote it off. I finally went in and my TSH came back 0.01 (low) and my Free t4 levels 3.3 (high). The endocrinologist will not see me until Nov.30th. I was scheduled for a Thyroid Scan and Uptake but after a lot of reading I discovered that the radiation would pose a health risk to my children. I had a Thyroid antibodies test done today and am waiting for the results. Nov. 30th seems like an eternity because I am always extremely hot, fatigued, my voice is hoarse, I have shooting pains in my neck and my hair is falling out by the handfuls. I feel alone with this disease and would love to hear from others.
