Hi,
Thanks gor using healthcare magic.

I have gone through your available history.

All your symptoms can be explained by depression and anxiety which is common co-morbid condition with hypothyroidism. But physical causes like vitamin D deficiency or electrolyte imbalance or diabetis should be ruled out.

For depression, you should cosult psychiatrist for detailed evaluation and management. Doctor may advise you to take antidepressant drugs like fluoxetine or sertraline.

You may go for stress management and relaxation exercise like breathing exercise for better control over stress.

I hope I have addressed your concern.

Feel free to revert to me in case if you have further query.

Thanks.

thank you for replying so early. after reading your reply i am suddenly feeling 60%better.

i forgot to mention;

calf cramps even if i am sitting normally on bed with legs folded under (thrice- twice in the night)
thinned legs and arms
i have stopped smoking completely for last 4 months, been smoking for 15 years (under 10 ) after a gap of 3 years. before i smoked for nine years.

my job- banker- sedentary
for the past six months i had been commuting from Gurgaon to Ghaziabad daily- in all 6 -7 hours both ways, now i have shifted near to Ghaziabad

till a month back there was a funny lemon like taste in mouth for two months which lingered after eating or drinking anything.
for the past two weeks, the underside of right toe had gone numb and i can feel a nerve right at the big toe joint.
lastly, i had severe back pain in 2004-2005, which has not relapsed. three arthritic vertebra.
PS
whilehaving back pain, the right thigh main front muscle had gone numb and I had to undergo heat therapy and current treatment to cure it
lastly, when i eat sweet fruit or food, i feel as if the fruit/ sweet is burnt/ evaporated inside immediately and there is a feeling of peace. I have scheduled a whole body check up tomorrow.
Thank you so much for your guidance.
