Hi guys I'm new to the community and looking forward to getting involved. I'm a 43 year old male with a history of various health problems including fatigue, brain fog, digestive issues, insomnia, anxiety, night sweats which subsided fairly significantly after an anti candida program.
I still have, and have had as long as I can remember in recent years, a very high heart rate after vigorous exercise. I'm a keen cyclist and if I go out for an hour or two its usually not a major issue. But after a prolonged spell of exercise such as the 6 hours I did at the weekend on a trip with my friends, my heart rate remains at something like 120-130 for anything up to 15 hours or so. This makes it very difficult to sleep as I usually wake with my pulse racing and despite being worn out, can't get back to sleep again.
I'm wondering if this could be thyroid related. A few years ago I had my heart checked out after reporting this to my GP and I had a VERY thorough cardio MOT including ECG, exercise ECG, 24 hour ECG and ultrasound. Everything came back fine !
Many thanks, look forward to reading your comments.
