2005 - I was confirmed to have Thyroid Disease along with my mother and younger sister. Also was noted to by Hypothyroidism that was more advanced in myself than my mother.

2008 - Started having anxiety attacks and diagnosed with Anxiety Disorder which was to replace the misdiagnoses of Bipolar Disorder.

2009 - Worst Episode of muscle spasms ever experienced that was in my neck as opposed to my chest as when I had panic attacks. Muscles around my thyroid spasmed in such a way that I was left incapacitated and unable to breath without great difficulty and discomfort.

Doctors at that time, were wanting to ultrasound the area to see if there was a tumor, but being unemployed and without any health coverage, it wasn't fiscally possible.

2011, 3 weeks ago - Tingling in the left side fo the face along with migraine around the left temple, followed by partial facial numbness and later fatigue in left arm. BP 160/123. Symptoms were following the pattern of a stroke, yet blood tests, cardiogram and CATscan could not confirm it. The symptoms subsided a few hours later, but the headache around the left temple continued to days and days afterwards.

1 week ago - Hot flashes and fatigue that seemed a bit of an abnormal were occurring and at some point, I confirmed a low grade fever was present. Almost perfectly 100F each time I've checked in the past 4 days including today. BP 88/68. (Low BP for someone who is usually borderline high blood pressure and prehypertension)

Do I know what is going on? No. Have I been to the doctor? No. Ever since the ER visit, I have not been able to get a hold of my PCP.

Honestly, I don't want to go to the ER a third time within 2 months. I don't feel like sitting around for 4 hours to be told, "I don't know what it was..." and "you don't seem to be in immediate danger now, but..."

NOTE: Since being diagnosed with Hypothyroidism and more importantly, after having Preeclampsia and delivering prematurely, I have not tested Hypothyroidic in any blood tests. I have normal TSH levels and it has been 5 years since my daughter was born.

I feel like I am going insane and without a trace of why.
