I joined this forum a week or so ago and have found out more about hypothyroidism in that week than I have in 6 months toing and froing from my GP! My last visit was the most reassuring so at least I now know which GP to ask for infuser. Anyhow, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism in July last year and started on 25mg of levothyroxine in September 2016. Dose was upped to 50mg 6 weeks later but I soon started having severe heart palpitations. Went back to GP who advised me to reduce my dose of levo to alternate daily between 25 and 50mg. Palpitations settled down but hypo symptoms are now returning. I have chronic anaemia and struggle to tolerate iron so it has been a constant battle to raise my iron levels at all let alone get them in range (being a veggie doesn't help). Had heart trace done in the past that showed a leaky mitral heart valve. Palpitations were put down to iron deficiency. Had a recent HBO count done, waiting on results for that and latest thyroid test results. Has anyone else had these side effects when starting levo? Any advice would be really appreciated as I'd like to go back to my GP fully armed!
It's probably worth noting I am also deficient in B12 and Vitamin D and take meds for both.
