I am at the end of my rope. The very end of my rope. I suffer from anxiety, stomach upset/nausea, racing heart, panic, exhaustion, insomnia, and more. I feel like that while I do suffer from anxiety, that there is something physical/biological making me feel so horrible all of the time.
My doc did some test in June 2016 and the results for thyroid were:
Free T3(1) 2.67 with a range of 2.5-4.3
Free T4(2) 1.20 with a range of 0.71-1.7
TSH, 3rd Generation (2) 1.26 with a range of 0.270-4.20
My blood sugar was 108

After looking on the Net, I am finding that there are disagreements about "normal" levels.
Your posts seem so knowledgeable and thus I am seeking some help from all of you. Are these levels OK? Thank you!

Are you on thyroid hormone? If so, which one. I would say your T3 is too low. I have the same symptoms as you and I am gradually increasing NatureThroid. I was recently diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease as well. The symptoms of hypothyroidism and Lyme are very similar.

Thank you so much for your reply. No, I am not on any thyroid meds. Is there a test for Lyme disease that you know of? Also, I think my symptoms are hyper in nature, not hypo. However, I know too little about both. I am rather thin and always anxious. So, I look at it as hyperthyroid symptoms.

Your numbers don't look like hyperT. There aren't really great test for Lyme. You really need a functional medicine or holistic doctor to discuss all of this with. It took me 9 doctors to find someone to start really helping me.
