Long story short I have normal TSh but have tested positive for antibodies to my thyroid. So it is either postpartum thyroiditis or Graves.
I have been super anxious my whole life, and have experienced bouts of joint pain, fatigue, irritability, unexplained 15 pound weightloss, nervousness, a tremor in my hands, a fast heartbeat, sensitivity to heat, and now this weird chest pain. Its like a pressure that almost extends to my throat. Doesn't hurt, but is uncomfortable, and I feel like I can't get a full breath. Only sometimes can I take a deep satisfying breath. I am no where near struggling to breathe, but its like I need to think about breathing all the time. This has been happening for a week now. The doctor thinks it is thyroid related and sent me for more bloodwork. He also gave me propanolol for the symptoms, which worked beautifully for a few days, but has seemed to stop working now.
I know anxiety itself can produce these symptoms, but I haven't really felt all that anxious when this is happening, not like a panic attack or anything. I did take a Xanax which temporarily relieved it. Anxiety has never made me feel this way in the past, btw.
