Looking for advise or support , I have panic and anxiety disorder and have used that board many times with great success. Today my concerns center around Anxiety and Thyroid Disorder.
Two days ago at work I had a major panic attack , vision was off , dizzy and very unsteady , hot and palpitations all the symptoms , I had to leave and a co worker had to drive me home.... once home after taking ativan and self help I felt better. Next day I called Doctor to see if my blood work from T4 and TSH had returned , they were and were flagged for me to come in to see Doc.... turns out after 10 years my thyroid has gone from under active to over active, my TSH levels were very low , well knowing this my Doc decreased my 112mcg down to 100 mcg , went in to pharmacy this morning having panic attack again , so afraid to take my med again because now I am associating the episode at work with the meds.... I was so scared that I only took half the pill , now I am in a big panic about taking the whole one tomorrow ..... omg I am a mess.... will it be safe to take the 100 mcg tomorrow? I am so confused and in panic. I have missed now 2 days from work because of this. Anyone that can help me sort this out or has been in the same tangle PLEASE all advice welcome. I just wish I had of taken the dose per scripted and worked through it , or my Doc had of started low and worked up to 100 mcg if needed.
