Hi,
I know how this feels..I was so anxious, wanting whatever was wrong to just get FIXED!!! I was also having panic attacks.

But my advice is BREATHE, BREATHE, BREATHE...
from deep down in the abdomen.
You may as well realx. For one thing, letting yourself be anxious just exacerbates the symptoms.
And the other thing is geting to the solutions may take longer than you wish. It took a year for me to feel well, though I did feel some better within a month.

I found that taking B 100 complex vitamins daily really helped with the nervous anxiety, as well as is feeding and healing to nerves. Spend some time just laying back and thinking about places that feel good to you. Allow space for you to be where you are...ill.

There is no need to be sacred, as even if you are low-thyroid, it is not likely life-threatening. It is more draining and annoying that we don't have the energy we used to have. But I do understand fearing the unknown.

Your feelings may come more from the illness and weakness than any real danger. I suggest you spend the down time reading everything you can to learn about thyroid and how to help yourself. The first way is to make yourself relax and do whatever you need to find some peace while you wait for answers that fit YOU.
Blessings! TF
