I really need help. I'm about to have a panic attack. I'm 17 and diagnosed a month ago as of today. I'm taking 25mcg levothyroxine until I go back to the doctors in March. For the past two nights my heart feels fluttery, it feels like it skips a death and airy if that makes sense. It also feels like I have air stuck in my chest and I need to burp and feels a little congested but when I cough on purpose it's dry. I don't know if my dosage is to much for me.. I am very small and petite, I'm currently underweight about 12 or 10 pounds. I'm supposed to weigh 100 - 102.
I'm on this group on Facebook (Hypothyroid Ladies) and asked this question to see if anyone else has this and they all told me I might have congestive heart failure and that I need to be on a 24 hour heart monitor etc. It scared me so bad I woke everyone in my house up crying. I felt my heart beat 150 times and it didn't skip. It mainly feels like theirs air in my chest.
