I have no experience to add like the others, but I just wanted to comment and wish you well. It's obviously not easy going through all that you currently are, and even more so if you are alone, so I'm truly glad you decided to write about it here. <3Blessed to be a mother of 5.

I have Graves disease which is an auto-immune disease which affects the thyroid gland, causing me to fluctuate from being hyperthyroid to hypothyroid.
The MAIN symptom has always been heart palpitations for me, and unfortunately thyroid problems go hand in hand with anxiety problems.
I am now 23 weeks pregnant with my first child - and the heart palpitations have worsened. I have been told this is completely normal for somebody with thyroid issues. I have also been experiencing breathlessness since pregnancy and noticing myself becoming exerted more easily - again, my endocrinologist assured me this is normal.
It sounds like you're in safe hands, and Drs know what is safe to use in pregnancy - my medication was all changed over to more pregnancy-safe drugs once I found out I was expecting, but I still have to take quite a lot of them - I know it can be scary, but they wouldn't prescribe anything in pregnancy if it wasn't necessary for both yours and babies wellbeing.
I hope the medication will help to calm things down for you soon.Hi! I'm Hayley

I feel for you. I had some pretty severe anxiety problems a few years ago when I was on the wrong medication and I know how tough it can be. I hope you'll feel better soon.
