Hey Pursie, I can totally, totally relate to what you are feeling. :wave: I've had those exact feelings for 10 months now, even before I started the Synthroid.
One doctor tried Anti-depresssants for anxiety disorder but I felt worse after taking them. (That was before my Hypo was diagnosed). Every day I get palpitations, chest pains, anxiety - and that exact feeling that you described, the adrenaline in the stomach/chest area. Like you just missed being in a car accident - that's how I describe it.
I've had all the tests - stress test, echocardiogram, ECG - and I am told my heart is fine, and to just "live with it - ignore it". yeah, right. :eek:
I have relied on anti-anxiety meds (alprazolam) to help me through it all. And am just hoping & praying that once my thryroid gets leveled, perhaps I'll feel better. We've just got to stay hopeful that eventually we will feel BETTER!
Hang in there!! Can you call a doctor and ask for something to help calm you down? It's worth a try.
