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. sad

Most probably they will not get back to you, you need to call and ask for an appointment!

Can you please post the levels of your TSH, FREE T3 and FREE T4 if you have them, do you know whether you have hashimot's disease or graves?please do post the results for the thyroid antibodies with reference ranges.
