  • The swollen legs, I do not profess to know much about. But, thyroid medication, and depression........ Are you on a high dose of T4 (levothyroxine)? Have you looked at www.stopthethyroidmadness.com? Do you know what your Free T3 and Free T4 are?

  • You should not be on the interstate, then, if you are having panic attacks. That is not fair to an innocent victim if you would crash.Anyway, you should see a doctor immediately for your leg swelling. It could be a blood clot.
