I am just wondering if I could have hyperthyroidism. My symptoms are fatigue, tiredness, poor concentration, recurrent miscarriages, now 2 years so possible infertility, very light short periods but regular every month, and brain fog. I am irritable and easily agitated, and I have growing anxiety and panic attacks. I had an ultrasound on my thyroid last week, and the specialist said my thyroid felt full. I am still waiting on the results.

I have chronic Lyme and have had many problems with it and no general physician or specialist got it. I have suffered with no memory, inability to read or write, finally seizures and inability to eat for 3 years. I said it was Lyme and found a true specialist who listened to me and not the useless tests. I now cannot eat at all and just got dysphagia so I cannot swallow. I had goiter, and know I have hypothyroidism but all tests fail and doctors only believe machines!
