Caffeine depleted my serotonin levels and melatonin levels causing me to have anxiety. What natutal supplements can i take?

Assessment 1st

Dietary_supplements
What you take depends on what the problem is, & what result you want. Before trying more supplements, it would make sense to see your doctor for assessment of the "derealization" and insomnia you mentioned in your additional patient information. These may be connected to more complicated conditions, and need specialized treatment for best results. Hoping for the best possible outcome for you!

I overdosed on caffeine before i was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. I cant sleep. Could it be my serotonin levels and melatonin levels dropped?

Partly.

Hypothyroidism
Caffeine itself can be the culprit for your insomnia. Hypothyroidism can cause depression which can lower your Serotonin level and can contribute to your insomnia. Melatonin is a diet supplement that can improve the quality of your sleep. In the winter time when we have less exposure to sunlight, our Melatonin level can go down which contributes to the winter blues and insomnia.

Why would my chest and or heart hurt when I consume caffeine?

Esophagus?

Cardiac
Could be gastroesophageal reflux disease GERD or another problem in your esophagus - May be related to hot rather than caffeine? It is not likely to be heart although it would be reasonable to check a pulse and blood pressure with your symptoms to make sure you are not very rapid or hypertense. Caffeine at normal doses is not known to produce a lot of cardiovascular problems

Could caffeine use exacerbate Osgood Schlatter's in teenage boy/and or poor diet?

Unlikely

Diet
Osgood Schlatters is a problem related to the growth plate at the top of the tibia and usually becomes problematic during periods of rapid growth as the bone growth outpaces the ability of the muscles to grow and stretch. While inactivity and obesity can make it worse, I don't think caffeine would affect it. Generally speaking, though, caffeine intake should be limited in growing children.
