Overactive thyroid

Hi everyone I'm new to this site and new to this tyriod hell. I'm after some advise I was diagnosed two weeks ago and have been on 25mg of carbimazole for thyriod and 40mg of propanolol for rapid heart rate. Late on Saturday night I started to have an increase in heart rate up to 115bmp and I felt like I was going to pass out once I got to sleep and felt better in the morning. I don't no if I am undermedicated or if it's panic attacks but it's driving me mad. Does anyone else still get episodes of increased heart rate while on propanolol. I'm am seeing the doctor this afternoon . Any help would really be appreciated. Thanks x

  • I am hypothyroid so cannot help you but those who've been hyper will respond as soon as they read your post.

  • Thanks 😆

  • Yep I knew I had thyroid issues again with the heart palpatations I've been having. I'm on propranolol 40mg and just started 5mg carbimZole. This is a starting dose until the rest of my blood results come back.  I feel awful breathless, tired, hot. It's rubbish isnt it.  X

  • It really is a horrible condition I can normally cope with anything but when this hit two weeks ago I felt awful. For me the increase in heart rate is the worse I saw doctor today as I was concerned and he advised that propanolol works straight away but does not last as it needs time to build up in your system which I never new. The hot and cold eating everything and constantly hungary will comeback to bite me lol. How long have you been diagnosed for. I'm hoping that the symptoms will start to fade over the next few weeks. Hope you start to feel better soon x
