I have relapsed for 3rd time with hyperthyroidism i.e. November 2017. Each time I have experienced rapid heart rate. Until recently just before being prescribed betablockers when sitting my heart rate ranged from 95 to 115. When standing still it ranged from 125 to 166.
Whilst beta blockers have helped to slow heart rate i find that they wear off 4 hours before next tablet has to be taken.
(Currently on 10mg of propranolol 3 times a day & 20mg of carbimazole.)
Since Nov 2017 as well as thyroid symptoms I have also had swelling in my left ankle. I mentioned to Dr back in Nov 2017 and he requested that i have a CA125 test which came back abnormal (0-35 is normal range) but my result was 66. As it was out of range Dr then sent me for a pelvic ultrasound scan which involved checking ovaries, kidneys, liver, tummy and aorta. All was normal.
The thing is I am still experiencing this swollen ankle. I saw Dr again about it, asking could it be because of my thyroid and could there be any link to the rapid heart beat. He didnt say but instead sent me for repeat CA125. The result was confirmed this week i.e. 46 and I was told this is is satisfactory. I don't have actual results of thyroid test redid last week but was advised I'm hyperthyroid but that results whilst still out of range, had improved.
Has anyone else experienced swollen ankle? Could it be thyroid condition that is causing it?
In the meantime I dont know where to go next with this.
