Hello all. I've battled fatigue, weight, anxiety, and panic for almost 9 years now. I had 4 miscarriages in 5 years after having 2 healthy kids. I was able to deal with the fatigue and the anxiety was almost non existent for 6 years while being on 50 mg of Zoloft. Last year, all hell broke loose for me. I had major panic attacks and ended up in a counselor's office. She sent me to a doctor and found out I was severely anemic. I also had my TSH tested. The first came back at 1.560 (range of .45 - 4.5 uIU/mL). Once my anemia was under control, the doc ran a second TSH test 5 months later.... 2.28 (same range). I'm still completely fatigued, am fighting anxiety. I saw a natural pharmacist who said he was concerned that I had the increase and was presenting with hypo symptoms but was told I was normal. This thyroid "stuff" is all new to me. I've thought for years that the anxiety, fatigue..and lately, the hair loss, panic attacks were just "in my head". It seems that there are some very knowledgeable people on here. Any thoughts?
Thank you in advance.
