Hello, I am desperate for my son's health and would like some advice as to proceed with some sort of treatment.

He is a very angry young man most of the time, especially to his family. But,he has numerous friends, nice friends, and is well liked. Yet, he displays moodiness, is always irritated, filled with anxiety, and seems in a panic mode at times. We thought possibly bipolar, and he has tried antidepressants and an anxiety drug, but he reports they made him feel worse, or over medicated and tired. When he took these meds, honestly we saw little if no change in him. He is eccessively thirsty,and hungry all the time. He was rather thin, but has since gained some weight, but not over weight. He complains of sweating all the the time, and his mind racing at times. I am wondering if he could possibly have a thyroid condition? He is a college grad and holds down a full time job and is doing well at it. He just can't stop this behavoir which is bringing us all down, and me to tears. Please I want to help him.
