It takes 7-10 days to absorb and metabolise an increase in dose. I think it's highly unlikely increasing dose this morning will have caused the strange chest feeling and it is more likely to be anxiety causing it.

If your endocrinologist increases dose based on the thyroid results you posted make sure you tell him/her you increased dose.
