      Hi. I do have anxiety occasionally, especially before I go to bed at night. I have also been a little panicky at times. My endo and the counselor that I saw for a little bit did not think it was bad enough or happened enough to put me on antidepressants or anti-anxiety medication. It is definitely an uncomfortable feeling when it happens.

      When it happens, I try to find out what event or feeling had brought it on. A lot of times I can, fortunately, talk myself out of it. Sometimes I have called relatives or friends just to talk, and that has helped. I also pray to God to help me get through it, and talking with the counselor helped too.

      A lot of my anxiety stems from being concerned about what if I do not feel well, and what if no one can help. Also, I am concerned someone else is going to find out about my Graves and how will they react when they do? I try (though it is hard sometimes) to keep myself calm, keep things in perspective, and to remember that I am not alone in this.

      You and everyone else in this board are not alone either. Take care and God bless.

        I was curious for those of you who have dealt with anxiety issues after being overmedicated (too much levoxyl in my case), did anyone out there have it actually pass on its own w/o having to use some kind of drug to “cure” the problem? Or it is just one of those things again where it just takes time. I know a lot of you out there who wrote to me said they needed meds so…. just wondering.
