Am still awaiting diagnosis, but have been put on Carbimazole and Diltiazem since last week after 2 trips to A&E, resting heart rate of 120, bloods show TSH: <0.01 T4: 51
I have been on Carbimazole for a week... Just wondered, how long (ish) for the heart rate to go down, and tremor/shaking and exhaustion to bugger off?!
I am struggling to take Diltiazem, its making feel REALLY bad, like I HAVE to stay in bed (which is impossible with 2 kids)... (Betablockers were not prescribed as I have asthma)
So I admit, I have been irregular with the heart meds as I cannot function, and unless I am lying down, my heart pounds away.... Is this dangerous?
BUT! I take the Carbimazole as prescribed. Also, the consultant at A&E said it would be fine continue training Taekwondo... Its quite a full on martial art. Is he correct? Really? With an elevated heart rate? When I asked him this, he just said, yes, the heart elevates with exercise anyway...
So, I am hoping someone will tell me some good news re heart rate/Carbimazole working to get rid of these horrible symptoms!! And exercise? Will I ever be able to to train strenuously again?
This is a rough ride, this thyroid business
