of heart palpitations, chest pain, shortness of breath
, hot flashes, stomach upset and insomnia--started with
much more intensity about 8 months ago. In addition to the above symptoms, I experienced loss of appetite, weight loss, diarrhea and extreme fatigue. My endocrinologist tested my TPO antibodies (which came back very elevated at the time) and attributed it to transient thyroiditis, as the gland itself was also swollen to the point I was having trouble swallowing pills.
