Hi Katie: In one of your answers you wrote:(quote) headache, hyperactivity, nervousness, anxiety
, and irritability. In your case, if you are sensitive to synthroid and your body does not process it quickly, then you could build up the medication in your body and have in essence, an overdose. That could easily explain your anxiety and panic
It is good that you are seeing a endocrinologist. Getting your hormonal levels back to normal will help greatly in understanding where the anxiety is coming from and give you a way to address it so you can resolve it. As it is now, there is no way to know the exact origins of your symptoms. I agree with your doctor, you are better off dealing with the side effects of the Xanax until this situation is all worked out. Your body will continue to adjust to the Xanax and hopefully, the side effects will decrease. That is what usually happens for most people. (QUOTE)
This is where I am today, everything you said above. But here's my question for today....how long does it take to get hormonal levels back to normal? I'm in my 6th week off synthroid. My psych said maybe next week or so we'll have some lab work done to see where we are.
Right now it's a waiting game for me. I accept that I am exactly where God wants me to be at this time of my life, although I don't understand why but I trust Him. I can't say it's easy but one day at a time is not so hard.
But anyway, any approximate time for my thyroid to get back in balance?
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX
