Hi, I am new to the forum. I have been recently diagnosed with both thyroiditis and hyperthyroidism.
My PCP has sent in a referral to an endocrinologist and I am awaiting a call for my appointment time and date. I have been seeking advice on what I can do to help myself until my appointment rolls around. I am sensitive to both heat and cold, I can not find a happy medium. I have anxiety and I have been having a lot of mood swings. It can get hard to swallow at points. I have an increased appetite, but I am constantly nauseated. My two main concerns right now is that I can not sleep and I am tired all the time. No matter if I can sleep for hours upon hours or no sleep. I am always tired and I have not found anything to help with this.
I am a 19 year old female. I have two jobs so I am trying to find some relief in this mess. My PCP put on there to make the appointment as soon as they can so I am hoping that I can hear back from them soon and not have to wait months down the road just to see the endocrinologist. This is very hard and very stressful to deal with.
