Pretty Sure I Have HyperthyroidismAbout 3 Weeks ago I started having this itchy redness that was on my back, and would come and go. Then one morning I had chest pain that seemed to go from my back to my chest. I went to the doctor because I was scared from this chest pain, and had them check out my rash too. The guy said I don't see anything, and I think you are just having rib cage pain probably from carrying the baby or exercise and to Ice it and take ibuprofen. So I did this, but knew this was not just rib cage pain it was more like chest pain so I started reading on the Internet, and found all this information about all the different cancers I could have, and then I started getting anxiety thinking that I was dying. Within the past 3 weeks I have been having a rash, feeling light headed, nausea, fullness in center of chest (indigestion?), weaker than normal, sweaty, pressure headaches, numb throat, chest pain, tiny red dots on skin, hip pain, stomach pains, and also noticed when I go running on treadmill I can only run for 2 minutes before my heart rate reaches 190's. So I went to the doctor with this, and he looked at me like I was crazy, and asked if I wanted anxiety meds. (I also just had a baby 4 mo's ago, and he said this could also bring on anxiety) He said if it will make you feel better we can do a blood test. So I took the anxiety rx since all I can think about is that I have cancer, and said yes I want a blood test!! So I work at the hospital where my labs were taken so I got to have a sneak peak, and found that I have high FT3, T4 total, T3 total, and Free T4, and very low TSH. Everything else seemed to check out good except high chloride. Looking up online I found all this info about hyperthyroidism which was a relief it's not more serious!!! But I'm still freaking out, and I tried calling my doctor today to go over results, but he didn't call me back. Has anyone else had any of these symptoms?
