Vaso Vagal Discussion

From: Mary


This sounds so much like the symptoms I have been having. It actually started about four years ago and I was diagnosed with anxiety and depression. I still do not know if that was actually the problem but I wound up having to go on Zoloft and have my synthroid adjusted. I have just recently started having some of the same symptoms again, but the doctor attributes everything to menopause. Maybe, maybe not, but I sure as hell wish I knew for sure and then maybe I could rest comfortably. I do know that earlier this week I was very nervous so I reduced my thyroid to half a pill the next three days and it seemed to help. After visiting the doctor yesterday he had me convinced that it was my menopausal symptoms so this morning I went back to my regular dose of thyroide. By the time I got to work I was getting that nervous feeling again.
