Does anyone else have this?

I've had anxiety for a while now well what seems like anxiety it's so hard to notice because sometimes the gaps between episodes are big then not so big. Does anyone else's heart rate go to like 134-170 then stay up between 95-115 ish for hours my last one lasted around 4 hours all together with quite quick runs to the toilet. It says on most things you read it lasts from 30 min to 1 hour.

Anyone else get this?

I am waiting on thyroid tests to come back

Hi my resting heart rate is around 73 but on 2 separate times in the last 7 months my heart rate has hit 121 and 146 on both occasions it has been during the night and it has woken me with a start. But I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism 8months ago and put on carbimazole and given propranolol so when this happened I took a propranolol which helped but it kept me awake for a good 3-4 hours ish and had to urinate a lot during this time. The next day I felt exhausted (though maybe lack of sleep) I do think it is worth talking to your doctor about but before they offer you diazepam or anything else for anxiety ask them to do a full thyroid test on you .s

Hi there the forum will ask for results and lab ranges first but i was hyper back in july and my heart rate was above yours and even on resting it was high, i too was using the toilet alot more, also panic attacks and tremors in my body and weight loss with a host of other horrid symptons. But others will be along shortly to help but i can understand you are worried but in the meantime rest alot and be lazy, i think the weight loss and breathlessness with me was a sign it was my thyroid. Take care.😊

I have had results from the thyroid at hospital tsh was 8.96 (0.30-4.50) but had bloods taken again yesterday as the doctor says being anxious can make it go up.

Hi there, there are much more experienced people on here and they will say they need your tsh levels and free 3 free 4 and antibodies tpo and tsi for graves and hashimotos, your tsh does look hyPO as hyPEr the tsh is much more supressed but i will leave that to the experts.x😊

Hmm, I doubt that. I think it's more likely to be high TSH (ie hypothyroidism) making you anxious.
