I have tried every antidepresion medicine and theyall just dont work. Been on valium and xanax also. I am very sensitive to medicine and have acid reflux bad and IBS. My pysch got mad because everything he wanted me on I had already tried and couldnt handle it. He said I was anxious and a worrier. I surviving on the klonopin to handle stressful events such as mom just diagnosed with cancer cells and never been sick in her 83 years of life. My blood pressure stays high and when I take b,p, medicine I end up at the emergency room. Weird I know, but I had 1/2 of my thyroid removed about 25 years ago and have never been put on thyroid medicine because the other half kicked in. I get it checked every year and my T3 are good then about 4 years ago all of this started.Sorry for the long post but now my Dr. is sending me to a endocrinologist. Has anyone ever heard of your thyroid messing with your nerves, blood pressure and sex drive gone:( Im also having arm and leg tingles. No im not a hyperchondriac:) Just wanting to live each day on this side of eternity with a joyful life. Please give me any advice you have on this situation. My endo appointment is June 7th. All comments are welcome!!Thanks and have a blessed day!!!
Yes, the symptoms you describe: high blood pressure, anxiety and lack of sex drive, can all point to a thyroid problem. It is possible as your thyroid attempts to compensate it cycles between hypo and hyper thyroidism, thus the unusual symptoms of both. To read further about these conditions try the following links:
You will notice that you have symptoms of both hypo and hyper thyroidism and thus why I think you maybe have a thyroid that is beginning to fail and trys to sputter back to life. You mentioned your T3 being good but what about the other readings like T4, TSH levels and thyroid antibodies.
I think an endo appointment is the best avenue to take. I appreciate wanting to live a life filled with joy and I pray that the endo doc can help.
