Hi, I've recently been off work for 3 months, went back and then had episodes of tachycardia after eating...again..
The endocrinology consultant in my local hospital said nothing wrong...so I went to see a private endocrinology professor who said I'm subclinical hypothyroid....
I stopped taking 25mcg of levothyroxin as per the local consultants request, but I'm definitely sure that my tachycardia was no were as bad when I was taking it; I know it's only a little amount but I wasn't waking up feeling like I do; dizzy and tachycardic.
The tachycardia when eating could be due to the things I'm eating; though I do eat rather well and I'm looking into an intolerance of some kind..though I'm pretty sure I didn't get like this as bad while taking it....it still happened but not to this extreme.
Has anyone else had such experience; tachycardia upon waking up and eating. Ive read that the adrenal glands takeover when your t3/T4 is low when waking up and as a result secret a little bit too much noradrenaline...hence the raised HR and BP...
Ps. I'm gonna get my T3/4 and TSH checked again...they were highish but that was when I was on thyroxin ...my TSH went down to 8 on thyroxin..but was previously 22, 26, 10...
Local consultant told me nothing wrong and to go on antidepressants, then sent a letter to my GP saying I had acute thyroiditis hence the slightly raised TSH (untrue, and not acute since i had raised TSH years ago) and that's why there's antibodies and that I may develop hyperthyroidism....pfft
The professor said I'm sensible and going back on levothyroxin is up to me and my GP, so I think I'm gonna do that!
