Extreme everything. Unexpected weight loss. Sever mood swings and anxiety, unable to tolerate heat, tremors, insomnia, extreme sweating, rapid heart rate, breathing difficulties, chest pain, stridor, severe asthma, blurred vision, severe depression, high blood pressure, atrial fibrillation, pvcs, eventual heart failure. These symptoms began when my son was 9 months old, and my doctor told me hormonal changes to blame.
