Hi all, i'm quite new to the whole thyroid journey and i'm just really looking for some reassurance. I've been feeling pretty ropey for the past 4 years with symptoms like exhaustion, anxiety, ectopic heartbeats, muscle aches etc etc. After the birth of my 2nd son 9 months ago i started to feel a tenderness in my neck and a feeling of choking or something being stuck in my throat. This resulted in me visiting my dr who took some bloods from me. My blood work came back saying i was slightly Hyperthyroid and that I tested positive for antibodies so she referred me to an endocrinologist. Saw an endocrinologist who took more bloods and pretty much sent me on my merry way. A few weeks later i received a letter from the endocrinologist saying my blood work showed i was now hypothyroid and to start taking 50 of Levothyroxine. This made sense as i have been feeling exhausted beyond belief. However, i seem to have a complete mental block about taking the medication, in fact i am terrified in case they make my ectopic heartbeats go wild! I know i'm being very silly but i just need some reassurance, i feel like i've not been given much information at all so i'm not sure what else i should be doing to help myself. I don't have copies of my blood work to share with you at the moment. Any advice/reassurance would be really helpful. I am absolutely exhausted so i know i should take them but i'm so afraid!
