I have been having nerve problems/panic attacks for the last few months, but have been having my thyroid checked too. I have all the classic symptoms of hyperthyroidism, but they are all so closely related to plain old panic attacks too. Nothing drastic has happened to me in the last few months to set off these panic attacks either. I am 36 years old and here are my latest test results:
TSH is 1.06
T4 is up to 16.6
T3 is 140

2 months ago they were:
TSH .90
T4 was 15.5
T3 uptake was 33
Free Thyroxine Index was 4.6


I don't know why they didn't run the same tests both times, but I do know my T4 keeps going up. It has been steadily climbing for the last few months. Does anyone know anything about this??

I go back to the endocrinologist in 2 weeks, but am just worried, and would like to talk to other people who know firsthand about this.

Thanks a million

Donna
