Anxiety is a common symptom of hypothyroidism, but also consider magnesium supplements; low mag. Causes anxiety & palpitations & many who are hypothyroid also have low magnesium.

Anyone: Although the condition most often occurs in women and in middle-age, it can occur in men, or in people of any age. In infants under the age of 6 months, any thyroid problems may be due to antibodies from the mother rather than their own antibodies, and so may improve without treatment as the maternal antibodies clear. ...Read more
