For the past 3 years I have been having hot and cold flashes, extreme anxiety, excessive burbing, brain fog, internal shaking, I feel like my insides are moving too fast for my outside which worsens when I try to relax, burping, the feeling that something is moving up and down my legs and feet, twitching, muscle aches, nervousness, heart palpitions, if I touch the back of my neck I get extreme strange feelings going down my legs, my ribs feel tight while resting, aat times my body feels like it is at a steady shake, my hands and feet sometimes feel so cold that they ache, night sweats. I am taking synthroid because I had radiation to my thyroid and my last levels were at 0.4 which has taken 2 and a half years to adjust so far. My symptoms are not near as sever as they were when my thyroid levels were at 23 but I am still having all of the symptoms that I was having while levels were at 23. Dr. said GAD but does anyone know if these symptoms will ever go away. Could they still be thyroid related? It is really scarry to feel like this and very discouraging. Any help or answers would be greatly appreciated!! I have read about GAD and alot of my symptoms don't sound like GAD to me but I am not a Doctor.
