I have alot going on...but, to be brief:
Lump on my chest, no period for the last 6 months and I was told my thyroid is out of whack. Plus, OCD, panic and anxiety, and most recently (for about 6-7 months) agoraphobia...and just this past week I have been talking in my sleep!!
Doctor: Dr. Robert, Doctor replied 2 years ago
Dear Customer, Thanks for providing quick additional information.
I can understand your concern.
I need little more information, before posting answer-
Have you been given any medications for thyroid disorder?
Do you have lump in between breast? Is it movable? Is it hard?
Have you been given any medications for anxiety?
Kind Regards,
Dr. Robert

I was on thyroxin a few years ago for hypothyroidism.
The lump on my breasbone has grown now for several years. It is hard and moveable. I was told at one point it was a cyst.
As far as anxiety meds...I don't take them after one prescription caused me 3 gran mal seizures.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I have also had torn muscles...only on the right side of my body. Calf muscle and in my right arm.
You can laugh as I am...sounds crazy but all is happening to me.
Doctor: Dr. Robert, Doctor replied 2 years ago
Dear Customer, Thanks for providing quick additional information.
I can understand your concern.
Well, such lump on breastbone, could be related with benign growth. It could be a sabecous cyst. It is not related with any serious issue like malignancy.
Usually they are of small size but sometimes they slowly get bigger over many months to become a few centimeters in diameter.
If it is on the xiphoid process then one other possibility of lesions like chondromas.
For diagnosis, x-ray, ultrasound and needle biopsy can be required.
Mostly these benign masses are removed and then their histopathological nature is further confirmed in laboratory.
As you are not having periods, since last 6 months so cause can be Hypothyroidism. Thyroid dysfunction could cause hormonal disturbances and result in absence of periods.
It is advised to undergo Thyroid function test , LH, FSH, Prolactin,S.testosterone levels ,Transvaginal sonography to rule out PCOD for further evaluation.
Regarding anxeity issue, Agoraphobia you would need these medications-
1. Antidepressants. Usually selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), such as paroxetine (Paxil, Pexeva) and fluoxetine (Prozac), are prescribed.
2. Anti-anxiety medications- Alprazolam (Niravam, Xanax) and clonazepam (Klonopin).
I understand that you have got seizures, from one of the anxiety medications, it would not happen with all medications.
A thorough evaluation should be done.
Talk therapy or psychological counseling, would be useful.
One should avoid caffeine, alcohol. You should get engaged in aerobic exercise and stress-management techniques like deep breathing and yoga.
You should take healthy and well balance diet.
You should consult a Psychiatrist and discuss this issue with them.
Good luck and take care.
Please let me know how I can be of further assistance.
My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back, I am happy to address follow-up questions.

Take healthy and well balanced diet.

I eat very well...kale, spinach, lentils, greek yoghurt and blueberries. I have noticed that 1 year ago I was only 56 kilo...Now I am about 76...smoking due to stress, although I hate it. But, I do pilates and treadmill.I have a doc appt. in a couple of days. They have already said everything you have and basically everything I was already aware of.
Doctor: Dr. Robert, Doctor replied 2 years ago
Dear customer,
Good to hear that you take a healthy and well balanced diet.
Such increase in body in body weight from 56 kg to 76 kg, should be further evaluated by doctor.
When thyroid hormone imbalance occurs, then also one would experience unexplained weight gain.
A repeat thyroid function test should be done.
Yes, you should see your doctor and discuss this issue with them for precise diagnosis.
God Bless You!!

I think that lack of sleep and my flatmate is constantly yelling at me is not helping...he is drinking and after I finally went to sleep he woke me up and now I have to stay awake until he goes to sleep.
He just tells me how pathetic I look just because I am laying down...one minute he says to rest and the next minute he does this to me. As bad as I felt yesterday, I forced myself up and made General Tso's Chicken for him and then he drank vodka and was just a total A**. after. I know I am venting, so sorry...
Doctor: Dr. Robert, Doctor replied 2 years ago

Please have some patience and follow measures as suggested in previous post.

Yes, lack of sleep would worsen your condition.
Please relax at home.
