    lundeenA posted:
    Four years ago i was told i have grading on my thryoid so i was referred to an endocrinologist who put my on synthroid 50mcg. 3 years later (a year ago) i knew something was wrong so went in and got a third opinion on my thyroid and was told i have no reason to be on it so was taken off cold turkey. three days after i stopped taking it i was hit was severe anxiety where i cant even drive without feeling like i am either going to die or pass out. I cant be anywhere in public alone or i get it. I have a 2 year old daughter and am 4 months pregnant with my second and it makes it worse thinking that if something where to happen to me my daughter will be in public alone. Is this normal? will it go away? Iv chosen not to take anything for it so far to try work it out but it is not getting any better and it has been a year now. help!
