I've just been told I have an over active thyroid. Second lot of blood tests done and confirmed but I haven't yet seen gp to discuss next move.
Really surprised, if anything I would have thought under but hey ho.
So, yes to lots of symptoms, but the reason my gp first requested blood tests was because my pulse is so low, it was 47. Now I do have low bp and low pulse anyway, always have, but shouldn't I be seeing an elevated pulse? I've also gained weight, but I've mostly put this down to stopping smoking 6 months ago. Certainly have a good appetite!
So, over active with low pulse??
Other things I've noticed, fluttering in neck/throat, dizzy, swollen ankles (long haul flight yesterday resulted in legs like tree trunks and stretched skin, thankfully gone down over night), tummy troubles...urgency to go, gritty eyes, itchy dry skin. Nothing else so far.
