Hypothyroid and Hashimotos

I was diagnosed with both these about two years ago. Am trying to treat with homeopathy, but no success so far. I have been in hom treatment for about 20 years. Need some new insight to my case.
Severe panic/anxiety attacks, lasting all day sometimes. Heart palpitations, feel hot, trembly shaky feeling inside, hysteria, blank mind, feel like I want to scream.
Irritable, unable to deal with the slightest little things. Tightness in center of chest. Weepiness, sometimes violent anger reaction. Extreme restlessness, walking about, cannot relax. Very agitated.
This started about a year ago, on and off, now since 4 weeks is almost constant. I was on Armour Thyroid 30mg for 10 days recently, had to stop cos it make me more hyper.
I talk much more, get very excitable. Feels manic.
I am worse when under stress, when anything is demanded of me. I am better watching tv, staying at home in the quiet.
Chest tightness better with hot water bottle on it. Have to take 2.5 mg Valium when the panic is really bad.

Sleep.... waking at 5 or 5.30 am, sometimes am able to sleep till 8am, sometimes no more sleep at all from 5 am. sometimes waking every two hours. Sleepy some days at around 4, 5 pm. except on days when I am very very hyper.
Dreams......mostly do not recall them.

Sensitive .... to cold weather and very hot weather. Hyper sensitive emotionally, to failure, criticism, anger, high pitched noise. Contradiction, arguments.

State of mind....extreme anxiety, anticipatory anxiety before a job or any small event. Forsaken by friends and family feelings. Feel like an outsider, an alien. Do not have really close friends, no close family. Very lonely, need to go out to the shops etc just to have human connection. Huge fear of failure, poverty. With the present symptoms, often want to die, beg god to just let me go in my sleep.
Fantasies intrude of a gun pointed at my head, like what you do to an animal who cannot be saved.
Very weepy at times, weepy after anger. Able to get verbally abusive and violent feelings if opposed, or criticised.
Apathy, indifference, unable to get motivated to do things needing attention.
Tired of living, cannot find any point to living if I have no one to care about me, and if I have to suffer like this, better to be dead.

No major diseases, other than Hashis and hypothyroid.

Medicine reactions....was taking Armour and Naturthroid periodically the last two years, on and off. The last two times I get violent reaction, hyper, manic, panic etc as above.

I have been prescribed many remedies, too many to list here. But the most recent are Lach (better sleep for one night then no use), Phos Acid, Nux Vomica, Iodum, Tarentula Hisp, Nat Mur, Acon, Ars Alb, Arg Nit, Cimicifuga (this used to work well to calm me down). I can supply a full list going back 20 years if needed.

Food desires.... sweets, in the pm and evening. english black tea. Salads. Olive oil.
Dislike vinegary things, pickles etc. Grains. Am eating gluten free, as I have a gluten sensitivity.

Other symptoms
Flatulence in the pm and evenings, pass a lot of gas, no pain, some abdomen bloating
Slight swelling of ankles in pm and evening
Cough in pm when I sit down or lie down, short duration, comes from chest, yellow mucus. Old chest cold that never cleared up.
Extreme increase in skin wrinkling all over body since 8 months. Huge muscle tone loss, especially inner thighs, where the flesh just hangs down. Disgusting.
Hair loss from head.....a lot, worse the last three weeks.
Brittle flaking finger nails.
Cannot tolerate my own emotions, make me weepy, anxious and trembly.
Some nights wake up very hot and wet bed from sweating. Get very chilly after uncovering.
Some mornings waking with tingling in hands, feet and chest, like electricity.
No sense of smell or taste in the morning, and reduced in the last year.
Red spots on nose

Stool good as long as I eat lots of salad and veges. Constipation when away from home or travelling.
I have uterine fibroids, probably still have symptomless gallstones, slight osteopenia.

Dental bone graft surgery, implants, dental reconstruction about 3 years ago.

I take no prescription drugs, but probably am going to start taking levothyroxin, 15mcg, to try to get back normal. I do not drink alcohol, no smoking, no recreational drugs. I eat healthy, walk most days.

I would be extremely grateful for any help with this current situation. Many thanks from me

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please take a single dose of Lycopodium 200 and see how that affects in next 15 days.

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 2 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 2 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.

Thank you for your response. I only have Lyc 1M, can I take that? I am in a bad panic state now, and really need to get calmed down. It will take quite a few days to have the 200 sent to me. Thank you

I am looking for the appropriate remedy for my daughter. She is 3 years old and I have not considered testing her, but she does have some hashimotos symptoms. Her sympotoms include sinus issues, and post nasal drip (I have it so I can tell), she is sweaty and hot a lot, she seems to hold on to her weight more than my other daughters, she has some difficulty going poop and she can be sluggish and have a hard time sleeping. She has a really happy disposition but her ongoing sinus stuff seems to be irritating her more and more Any help would be meaningful and wonderful
