3 months ago I had an attack of some sorts which afterwards left me feeling symptoms of dizziness, disorientation, extreme fatigue, fast heart rate, lump in throat, infrequent bladder and bowel movements etc. I carried on with these problem for a month or so before I decided to get help about it.
I took a blood test and it came back stating I have an underactive thyroid. The doctor suggested that this could be a one off and organised a test for 2 months later. Within this time the condition worsened and he brought forward the test, this test also read that I have an underactive thyroid gland. I began treatment for it about a week ago (Levothyroxine). I am also being treated for depression with Prozac.
The condition has caused me to be unable to travel due to fatigue and such like which means I have had to abandon college.
My confusion is that, I thought the symptoms I mentioned such as fast heart rate were associated with an overactive thyroid gland. I have been worried that my condition may possibly be something more such as a heart problem. Or could it be that the anxiety and worry (which I have) are causing other symptoms also. I am assuming I definately have the underactive thyroid after all.
If anyone could shed some light and help out over this I would be most grateful.
Thanks, best wishes.
