Is this good advice?

What your are describing sounds like hyperthyroid..When you say your thyroid tests came back normal..what did he test? If he only tested TSH, it is not a good indicator of your actual levels. You need to AT LEAST get your free T3 and free T4 and TSH tested as well for an accurate indication. I would also ask for an antibodies test for Graves. Even if you are in the "normal" range (on what he tested you on), you can experience symptoms if you are on the high (or low) end of the normal range. Second, I would get a "second" opinion. Rarely do general practitioners know what to do with autoimmune type symptoms. I would look for an "integrative" doctor in your area (they tend to look at a broader picture of what is going on). Also, you may want to get a full hormone panel. It doesn't matter your age, you can have hormone imbalances at any time in your life.

Hormone imbalanced occur naturally, such as in puberty, menopause and perimenopause. Hormone imbalance may also be caused by toxins or an unbalanced lifestyle.
But whatever you explained. it sound like symptoms of hypothyroidism. Suggesting you to get diagnosed as early as possible.
