Hello, I am a 36 year old male who within the last month ended up in the hospital with chest pain, very high blood pressure 200/160 and difficultly breathing. Doctor at ER ran blood work on my heart and an EKG and everything was alright. He advised me I was having an anxiety attack and gave me Alprazolam to take. Since then I have been to several doctors to try and figure out what is going on. I finally found a doctor who stated it may be a thyroid issue. I have a family history of thyroid problems with my mother having hypothyroidism, my sister just had thyroid cancer (which she is recovering from thank God) and my grandmother on my mother's side also had thyroid issues. Anyway, went and had an ultrasound of my thyroid and it is slightly enlarged overall and the left side is slightly larger than the right, but I have not been told how large slightly is. My GP doctor also ran a TSH and T3 screen and it came back as TSH 0.89 (range 0.34 to 5.6) and T4 was 9.1(range 4.5-12). Based on these results my GP told me I was OK and said I had anxiety, gave me more Aplrazolam and sent me on my way. I went for a second option and he ran more tests--T3free 112 (range 70-112), TSH 0.59 (range 0.47 - 4.68) and Free Thyroxine 1.9 range (0.8-1.9). Based on these results, my symptoms, and my family history he is sending me to an endocrinologist and gave me remeron 30 mg to help me sleep at night. My symptoms are: higher than normal blood pressure 150/90 (I have been on BP medicine since I was 25), higher than normal heart rate (72 to 82 beats per minute resting, used to be around 65), insomnia(went three day with no sleep), difficultly concentrating, uncontrolled shaking hands (if not on new medicine), edgy, nervous, anxious, my heart feels like it is fluttering sometimes (difficult to describe the feeling), chest is tight, loss of appreciate, and one really odd one, my jaw tightens and I have a sore jaw by the end of the day..... Now that I am finally able to get sleep I still am very tired during the day but always feel like I should be doing something. I have also lost 15 pounds in two weeks. Anyway it is another month before I can get into an endo and was curious on your thoughts regarding this.
