I Had My Thyroid Removed For Ca Feb. 07.
I Became Hypothyroid With A Tsh Of 176. It Felt Like My Brain Was Being Fried. My Endo. Said This Was Because Of My Tsh Levels.
I Had Diff. Returnig To Work. Would Feel Overwelmed.
I Needed To Go To The Er. Found Out I Was Hyperventilating.
I Had Numbness To The Face And Hands, Chest Pain, Blurred Vision.
I Went To A Counselor Today For My Panic Attacks. She Said
I Should Practice Deep Breathing, Visulazation And Reduce Work Load. I Hope All This Gets Better. Slowly But Surely I Think It Will.

I Have Been Using Relaxtion Techniques, Positve Thinking, Deep Breathing Excersises And A Adjustment To My Thyroid Meds To
Try To Get Past These Panic Attack Problems. It Does Appear To Be Helping. I Did Not Exp. These Panic Attacks Ever Before It Was Quite Disturbing. I Have Been Reading Books On The Subject And Feel That Its Just A Matter Of Time Before This Comes To An End.

Lavender....that's how I ended up a full blown alcoholic for about 10 years....NOT a good option.

Eventually the alcohol does nothing for the anxiety and then you are really screwed. I quit cold turkey about 6 years ago and although I still get PA's from time to time, I no longer need to dive into a bottle to control them.

Gotta watch the can get out of control quick if you are using it to control panic.
