I've just been for my second lot of blood tests. My first showed low thyroid and low t4. My doctor wanted me to wait 6 weeks and repeat bloods.. which I have done. This time t3 has been tested too along with full works. Just waiting for results.
I'm on iron tablets which has helped with my tiredness an awful lot. I was really animic too so been taking iron tablets 2x day for 6 weeks. They really have helped but my heart palpitations are awful still.
They can be constant all day. The last two days have been particularly bad. They make my chest feel quite heavy and I have to really concentrate on my breathing to make sure I get breath deep enough into my chest. It's really hard to describe.. but my chest goes crazy with flutters, I have to breath in really deeply otherwise I feel like I struggle for breath and then my head goes all funny too.. dizzy/light headed and I really struggle to focus on anything until the feeling passes. The last two days I've had to stay quite still and just rest because this sensation has been quite constant.
Episodes like this happen about once a month, usually coincide with my ovulation cycle too.. only started when I started having symptoms of thyroid problems too.
Anyone have any idea what it could be or what I can do to help it? I don't drink cafine or have sugar in my diet or smoke and I don't suffer from anxiety or stress.
