Anxiety problems

by Selena

Hello, I'm a 41 year old female that has been experiencing anxiety off and on for a year now. My symptoms range from racing heart beat to feeling as though I can't take a deep breath. Im also hypothyroidism for the past 13 years. I'm currently taking Armour and have been for around 5-6 years and it's the longest Ive gone without medication adjustments. I recently had my levels checked and my progesterone is at level 1 and estradiol is 328. TSH is 5.39 and vitamins D 34. Please help me figure out what I need to start feeling better. I'm feeling so desperate and afraid.

Oh yea get your d up to between 70 and 90 most experts say this is optimal. I did 10000iu got three months then 5000 and have stayed at around 80. Costco it's cheep.

High TSH
by: Kat

Your TSH is far to high indicating you are undermedicated.
TSH should be between 0 and 1 for you to feel good.
Have you had your adrenals tested?
Are you using Progesterone now?

Thank you everyone for your advice. I'm currently taking 100mg of Progrsterone days 14-28 just incorporated this into my regimen again and now taking 60 Mg of Armour...Wow what a difference it has made no anxiety this is so WONDFUL! My head does feel a little off since starting my new dosage of thyroid meds is this normal I've only been taking it since November 25th, but wow feeling better for sure. Another thing I noticed my heartbeat was beating faster before new increase now it's slower but normal. I do feel my heart flutter a few hours after taking my meds in the morning and then it doesn't do it again.
