I am aware that Hashimotos can cause Hypo and Hyper symptoms but I do wonder if I am in fact over medicated now?? I spent the winter cold, tired and low and on Christmas day all I could do was just curl up on the sofa wrapped in a blanket because I was so cold. I was suffering from Plantar Fasciitis and generally felt rubbish plus having terrible stomach problems even though I had given up Gluten some months before. I increased medication, with my docs blessing, in December/January from 50 to 75. In February, after another night of stomach and back pain I went and saw a nutritionist who said I had a leaky gut and told me about some really strong probiotics I could take. I also gave up all of the gluten free foods I had been buying (pasta, bread etc.) and I started making bone broth and more recently juicing fruit and veg ('cos I never eat enough of either). I have felt better and better over the last 3 months and now have more energy that I know what to do with - this morning for example I have been for a cycle, walked round the town, cleaned the windows, hung out washing, changed the bedding, done some shopping, looked after the grandchildren for an hour, washed up and prepared dinner plus I have done some work for a friend (and it's not even midday yet). All wonderful but I am finding my heart is racing quite often and has been for the last week or so. Is it possible that I am now absorbing the Vit D, Iron, Selenium etc. now my stomach is better and that I no longer need 75 of Levo?? My doctor took my blood pressure last week and said it is now so good that I can come off my BP meds. I have booked a blood test for this week to check my antibodies and Thyroid readings - should I stay on 75 until then or is this racing heart dangerous?? and I should cut down to 50 now??
