hi im new here. i am a 20 yr old female and i have been diagnosed with depression and ptsd. i am on celexa 20 mg(slowly coming off) xanex .5 four times a day geodon 40mg(slowly coming off) lamictal 200 mg and they recently put me on tegretol(not sure how much).i was looking up some of the symptoms i have had and thyroid disorders came up. i asked my mom if anyone in our family had thyroid problems and she said her aunt and cousin.
the symptoms i have been expiriencing RECENTLY (within past two years) is severe depression/lack of energy, vertigo, migraine headaches, tennitus, anxiety, loss of concentration, inability to lose weight,hypnogogic hallucinations,unable to control body temp, shortness of breath, constipation heavier periods, lightheadedness,.
also recently (past week) my front of my throat has been painfull to the touch and its uncomfortable to wear tight shirts. i did have high chloresterol but i havnt had it cheacked in a while so i dont know how its doing.
so the two questions i have are 1) do you think i could have some type of thyroid problem or that its all gotta do with my meds?
2) if i have a test done how will i go about it? because i am on the tegretol it can screw up the results so i dont know what tests if any i could have. should i come off of the tegretol? i have a VNG test on wednesday and then a dr appointment right after. what should i do? need help ASAP!!!
please and thank you
