Our expert says:
What you are describing sounds very much like a mixture of the typical physical and emotional symptoms of anxiety and depression, and I would have had you properly assessed by a psychiatrist long before sending you for thyroid tests or other blood tests. And if nothing wrong was found on blood tests I see no point whatsoever in repeating them at intervals.
A goitre might contribute if making excessive thyroid hormone, but that would show on blood tests. And it wouldn't just go away.
It may be fortunate that you are distant from an endocrinologist. See a good psychiatrist for a full assessment, and medication for anxiety and depression might well reduce or even gradually remove these unpleaant symptoms
