Hello,
Thanks for your query.

I appreciate your efforts for medical consultation in so much distress.

Increase heart rate (specially if tests are normal) and poor sleep are symptoms of anxiety disorder. Thyroid hormone imbalance also increases chances of developing anxiety disorder manifold.

Other symptoms of anxiety which may or may not be present in your case: nervousness, restlessness, mild irritability, excessive worry regarding own health, tremor, muscle spasm (may lead to pain in any part of body), heaviness in body, easy fatigability, headache, sleep disturbance, palpitation and dry mouth.

So following steps will help you:
-Reduce your health worry by investigating causes.
-Repeat thyroid hormone test (T3/T4/TSH).
-Kidney function test and Urine routine and microscopy
-Blood sugar level
-Evaluation for anxiety detection: Anxiety disorder is diagnosed from detailed history taken by psychiatrist, mental status examination and laboratory test to fix cause of anxiety.


I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow ups.


Wish you good health.
Regards,
Dr Ashish XXXXXXX Mittal
