Thryoid or behavioral/

Years ago I started having trouble swallowing (I associated this with lack of liking dentists).  For the last few months I have had trouble sleeping.  One night I attempted to lay down and my mind was going a million miles a minute (thought I was going crazy).  Since that time I have not been the same.  Walking around in a daze, warm sensation in arms and hands and racing thoughts.  I father died of thyroid cancer.  My first ever visit to new family doctor said anxiety/depression.  TSH level was within range.  I have a endo appointment in a month in a half.  A psyc appointment earlier.  Is this normal hyperthyroid issues?  I'm a very athletic guy, 3 years ago weighed 230 and been steady at 200 now.  I associated the weight loss with trouble swallowing.  I find myself fatigued despite getting some sleep (over the counter sleep aids).

What was your actual TSH result?  Were any other thyroid related tests done?  If so, please post those, with reference ranges, as shown on the lab report.

I did not receive any levels- just a sentence that said TSH is within normal range.  That is the only thyroid test conducted.

Get your free T4 and free T3 levels checked as well. Just to add, I was very hyperthyroid with subclinical hypothyroidism on paper due to Graves antibodies showing up as well as having Hashimoto's thyroiditis antibodies. My thyroglobulin serum was elevated due to hyperthyroidism.

I have had cognitive issues from many different health conditions including my thyroid issues. Anxiety issues in particular with a thyroid imbalance.
