I had graves years ago and was told I was in remission. When daily anxiety attacks, headaches, etc. started two years ago, my endo insisted it was not my thyroid; however, never tested my antibodies, just TSH, total T3. I now have new doctor who tells me at the least hashimotos (TPO elevated) although TSI is just within normal levels at (107 and 120 - elevated 129). I now take xanax every day a couple times a day. I cannot take any stress at all, even something minor as a argument can send my heart into palps and shaking, jaw tightens up. Does anyone else have this level of DAILY anxiety problems. I'm not convinced it is "just" my thyroid. Dr. did test for pheo as normetanephrine levels were high but urine test negative. I am so sick of worrying I am going to have a heart attack. I am also menopausal and on estrogen which I am convinced throws off thyroid levels. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
