Also, I have no cholesterol, no diabetes, do not smoke (quit 4 months back) and drink very rarely. All other tests results are normal. Only my thyroid levels fluctuate. T3 is normal, T4 is little bit high in decimals. And TSH is 0.01. I am overweight, but am trying to lose weight. My mother too has hyperthyroidism. She is euthyroid now. My BP was high during panic attacks and anxiety episodes, but normally it is 120/80. I was advised to take anti-depressant, but decided against it. The walks that I do has partially helped me overcome my fears. But I read too many internet articles and a recent one about slow heart rate has given me health anxiety.
