Hi. I recently had my levo reduced as I was experiencing sinus tachycardia, I have had a 24hr urine test, the reduction in meds appears to have helped, however I am getting rapid heart rate after eating certain foods which I didn't have before, I appear to have some food allergy! Every week or so I am now waking up with palpitations, they eventually go,off, it's like my body is overheating...I thought it could be the menopause, I am nearly 49, I asked the doctor but he just looked at me and ignored my comment!

  • Have you ever done an adrenal stress profile saliva test? High cortisol can contribute to the problems you describe. Also, when I treated my low iron my heart issues (including sinus tachycardia) got substantially, but not completely, better. I'm still improving now, although progress has been slow.

  • Hi thank you, had not had any tests except for 24hr urine, doctor didn't acknowledge

    Them when I mentioned them, I will have to try again, hoping you are on the road to recovery.

  • When I was tested for food intolerance the definitive test was an increase in pulse rate when I ate something I was intolerant to! I was intolerant to wheat. I am now, several years later on a gluten free diet after being diagnosed with very raised TPO anitbodies

  • Hi, thank you, I have only been getting this intolerance since getting sinus tachycardia which I am sure is levo related, it's almost like my heart is now intolerant in some ways including some foods, can't even have a small alcoholic drink anymore,not a great worry as I only had the odd Rose, but nonetheless a shame, just another side effect of this whole problem which I am still trying to get sorted!
