Okay: This is usually easy to manage by thyroid replacement as required. A heads-up -- maybe 1% of hashimoto's folks get a vasculitis that can involve the brain and mimic multiple sclerosis; it's treatable but it needs to be suspected before the call can be made. Complications of hashimoto's are rare; you can read about them on your own, get seen fast if the goiter grows fast.

Can hashimoto's thyroiditis cause panic attacks?

Can hashimoto's thyroiditis cause panic attacks?

Typically not direct: Hashimoto's will have a brief high thyroid state before the patient becomes low thyroid; when this brief period of too much thyroid hormone happens, the patient may be more agitated. Also if the patient's thyroid medication is appropriate replaced, panic attacks would not be associated with the disease directly; however any one with a chronic disease is more prone to anxiety including panic attacks.
