No, it's NOT: Thyroid storm, that is a completely different disorder which you can not have because you don't have hyperthyroidism. Make sure your thyroid level is normal with brand name T4 replacement, and if so, your thyroid has nothing to do with your problems. Check w/your doctor. Your problems are much most likely due to your weight excess and poor diabetes control.
