Hi all! I want an opinion. I have a lousy health care plan and well, the only dr I've seen is one of those who wants to rush you out the door or shrugs me off and tells me to see a shrink. For a few years, people have suggested to me that I might have an overactive thyroid. Recently (past year), I've been feeling worse. I'm really anxious, I dropped down from 105 to 88lbs (I'm only five feet tall, but c'mon! That's a lot to lose without dieting!), I have difficulty sleeping, and I sweat all the time. I had a thyroid panel run and I was told that my T4 and free T4 were (in my doctors words) "kind of high, but nothing to worry about". I'm starting to become worried because my weight keeps dropping and I don't know what to do! Any advice? Does this sound like an overactive thyroid? My doctor told me to see a shrink :(
Thanks for any help!
