I'm newly diagnosed with hashis and have been on 25mcg for levo thyroxine for about 8 weeks which took my tsh from 6.7 down to 4.2. Doctors increased my dose to 50mcg this week. I started taking the higher dose on Friday morning. By lunchtime I had no appetite and didn't on Saturday either. Sat night I started feeling anxious and my heart was racing which for worse and resting heartbeat of 110ish. It finally dropped to 97bpm at about 2:30am and I got to sleep for a few hours. It felt like my heart was going to come out my chest and was super frightening. My heartbeat is usually quite slow. I assume this is the rise in medication. Is it normal and how long does it take to subside?
Should I carry on with 50? I took it this afternoon as was too nervous to this morning.
