Nurse72 : Do you have any history of anxiety?
Customer:

No. I ususally handle pressure really well. Nothing that's ever made me feel this way before. Especially if I just woke up and was not thinking about anything before got hot flashes and dizzy. Would that be a symptom from anxiety?

Nurse72 : Yes it sounds like an anxiety attack. They can manifest at unusual times and be accompanied by other odd symptoms
Nurse72 : I'm glad you had your heart checked
Nurse72 : Another possibility could be an over active thyroid
Nurse72 : Do you have weight loss or heat intolerance?
Customer:

That is what someone mention, regarding the Thyroid. I have been getting really warm lately.


 

Nurse72 : This can be checked with simple blood tests TSH t3 and t4
Customer:

mentioned

Nurse72 : It may be a good idea to check your thyroid before assuming its anxiety
Customer:

The Hospital checked my blood and looked for diabetes, anemia and nutrition. Would they have also looked for Thyroid issues?

Nurse72 : No, that's not a routine test like the others
Customer:

I can imagine that the lack of not knowing what it is, is causing me to get anxiety and build up the stress of this coming on. I will absolutely check for the Thyroid issue with them. Is it an easy fix if it was Thyroids? Can it be treated and not effect me anymore :-)?

Nurse72 : If it is an over active thyroid their is treatment, they can either remove the thyroid or radiate it to stop it from functioning.
Nurse72 : After this is done you would need to take a thyroid supplement
Customer:

Okay, thank you! I will go this week and appreciate your advice!
