FluttersWelcome to HealingWell and the A & P Forum. We are very happy to have you with us but sorry you are having anxiety problems.
I do not have any advice from personal experience but I do know we have had several members that have post topics just recently re ovulations and anxiety issues. I am sure they will respond. Also browse through the posts and you may find the topics.
I would like to suggest you see another doctor for a second opinion if your not comfortable with the suggestions of you physician. Remember to be your own advocate when it comes to dealing with the physicians.
Again a warm welcome to HealingWell.Kitt
I am currently taking Synthroid for thyroid issues. I have been for eleven years. My dose is .125. I will tell you that it took me a while for my levels to adjust and I felt horrible the entire time. You have to remember your metabolism is running low which makes you tired and depressed. Synthroid is speeding that up which can make you very anxious and the reason that they do it slowly. If your blood tests are showing that you are in the normal range for your thyroid then give is another month or two. I had a previous doctor who kept me on the lower side of the range and I felt horrible. If you are not feeling better try another physician. I had to switch doctors three times before I had one listen to me. Do your research on line as well.

Hi Flutters, welcome, it's wonderful to have you here at HW, we will try and have a crack at your problems!! I get heightened anxiety just before my period and have polycystic ovarian sydrome. My doctor has given up trying to get rid of them and told me to put up with it...ah doctors
Hormones are nasty little buggers (can I say that?) but as with all things in life, they eventually even out. Trying new meds can be scary but hopefully the benefits will be worth it for you? I'm not going through what you have exactly but I do take the pill to help control my POS and I don't have any negative reactions. It's actually nice to know WHEN my period is going to arrive instead of having a nasty suprise! Please let us know how you are going and feel free to vent about anything, we are here to listen.
