My Thyroid-S arrived today (excellent service) however can I please have some clarification, before I start taking it, because something happened on Tuesday (3 days ago).
After occasional dizzy spells (gradually worsening) but short lived, I had a full blown episode, of what I was told, was vertigo. I actually collapsed at work, bradycardia of 40 bpm, pallor, sweating (no pain) extreme spinning and dizziness and severe vomiting caused by the dizzy spell. I couldn't hear anything or open my eyes, I have never felt so ill in my life. My colleagues called an ambulance and I was taken to hospital.
My ECG, I was told, showed the bradycardia but also showed an inversion to my T wave!!!!! My husband asked what that meant and we were told that the area of my heart that controlled the electrical activity (pacemaker) was struggling.
I was treated for the sickness and dizziness and, as that reduced, the ECG reading improved although the brady didn't. My hubby, bless him, mentioned our thyroid concerns to the Dr who said I did indeed appear to be displaying classic hypothyroidism but again confirmed that the guidelines prevented him requesting further investigations based on my recent history.
Crazy huh? I'll just die shall I?
Anyhoo, I was referred to ENT who were lovely and said they would investigate my current problem which they attributed to labyrinthitis, although I have and had, a core temp of 35.6C, and no signs of infection other than a slightly raised white cell count.
I am now taking prochlorperazine (stemitil) and betahistine for the sickness and vertigo and am home. No further mention was made of my heart activity.
I personally think this has more to do with thyroid than inner ear problems.
I would welcome all opinions, advice and experiences in regards to this also advice on whether it's safe to start the thyroid-S whilst taking this other stuff.
Sorry this post is long and thank you in anticipation xxxxxx
