Hello, just looking for some advice as gp seems to not be interested in looking into anything.
Have had total thyroidectomy last year due to hyperthyroidism. Had ECG done before surgery and all was ok.
After surgery was put on levothyroxine 100mcg but started noticing strange symptoms. Heart palpitations, feeling of blockage. TSH and T4 test result was fine.
GP thought dose was too high so reduced to 75mcg due to heart symptoms but latest TSH result came as abnormal (hypo). Carpal tunnel syndrome also evident. However heart symptoms still there! Had ECG done came abnormal as heart rate too high (>100 beats per min).
Problems with heart started since taking levothyroxine. If dose is too low however, am hypo with low TSH, but if keep at 100cmg heart symptoms still there. GP refuses to recognise any link between levothyroxine and heart symptoms despite the dose change and thinks they are unrelated despite normal ECG right before surgery. Am thinking of starting Thyro-gold instead of levothyroxine or doing a slow transition. Does anyone have any advice or experienced something similar to this?
