I saw an endo. last year who thought I was over medicated because at the appt. my pulse was 120
Blood results came back TSH 0.11 range 0.35 - 4.7 T4 13 range 7.8 - 21 and T3 5.1 range 3.8 - 6.0
The bloods were taken at 11.00am whilst at my appt.
Normally I have bloods taken at 9.00am and T3 has never been more than 4.4 so I wondered if having it taken at 11.00am was the reason for it been higher.
Anyway he discharged me and left me on the same dose of levo. 100/125mcg. alternatively. and said I maybe should see a Cardiologist re the fast pulse.
I told my G.P. about this and she said they have a Cardio call that I could use (I have waited six months to get it)
I have just had a phone from my G.P. call to say the result shows the beats are even at 75 but there is a wave on every beat and she does not know if it is significant or not. She asked how I felt and I told her one of the G.P's had reduced then increased my levo. but I did not feel any better and the racing pulse and palpitations and settled down but had started up again since increasing my levo.
She said I think the best thing is to show the result of the cardio call to a cardiologist for a second opinion and ask if it needs repeating or if I should have a consultation with one.
I started using the cario call one week after increasing my levo. so was wondering if this had any bearing on it.
Does anyone know what the wave on the beat means as my G.P. did not seem to know and I am now worrying.
Any advice greatly received,
Many thanks browny
