"Many of the symptoms of hyperthyroidism are found in an anxiety disorder and hyperthyroidism and anxiety are often confused. Furthermore, if a hyperthyroid patient should developed a fear of some of these symptoms, such as, rapid heart beat and palpitations, a true, full-fledged anxiety order could develop as well."
The answer is a HUGE YES TO BOTH. If you are having issues with anxiety and your thyroid, definitely get a blood test, make sure your medication is at the right levels, and if you still feel anxiety afterwards, seek medical attention for that as well. Synthroid does take 4-6 weeks to get going in your system as well.
