Hi I'm 23 and I've got hypothyroidism, I've been taking levothyroxine for around 3 years.
Recently I had an awful episode with my heart. It was the first time anything like this has happened to me. Rapid heart rate (nearly 200), chest pain, chest tightness, difficulty breathing, feeling dizzy and faint. I ended up in an ambulance, then resus and was admitted to the hospital. I was treated for a blood clot and then told it was SVT, some people only experience it once in their life and for others it's a daily problem.
I'm still struggling with episodes, daily. I'm waiting for my next cardiology appointment, and I'm on beta blockers in the mean time.
Had anyone else experienced this? And is it at all linked with hypothyroidism? Thanks!
