Can Hashimotos mimic POTs? The hallmark of POTS seems to be to feel dizzy and lightheaded with a pulse increase of over 30bpm upon standing.
I was overmedicated a little while back now and had some horrid symptoms sweating, high pulse, panic attacks, insomnia, severe heat intolerance and terrible palpitations. I didn’t have these symptoms before the overmedication.
I pulled back and my labs look ok. Wondering if perhaps my T3 is still a little high for me personally as I’m still having some insomnia, one or two minor palpitations a day and some heat intolerance. Nowhere near as bad don’t get me wrong just lingering. I’m also experiencing the pulse jump of 30bpm or over which is seen in POTS patients but with none of the dizziness/lightheadedness or exercise intolerance.
I’m just wondering if this could still be an overmedicated or Hashimotos thing or whether I could actually have POTs and that could explain the lingering symptoms I’ve been left with.
