So I will have to go in Jan 2020 for Vitamin and A1C fasting test. I along with some of you on here am experiencing rapid heart beat, when I walk or do daily chores it goes for 67 to 156, really fast! my GP insist not my thyroid meds since I am on a low dose of amour thyroid, and according to her in perfect range. In spite of that I continue to insist I am still having issues with my heart rate I sleep 4-6 hrs when I can fall asleep wake up with racing heart then have to meditate back to sleep. It’s a vicious cycle. Therefor I asked to be referred to a cardiologist since my dad passed at 67 of a heart attack, and my brother who is two years older than me 63 has 4 stents in his heart. I have not had a problem with My heart rate before taking meds for Hashimotos disease. Now I have to rule that out. GP prescribed a beta blocker metoprolol 25 mg 1/2 am 1/2 pm which I am not sure I’ll take until I hear it from the cardiologist. I am so frustrated with the heart racing crap drs seem to know nothing about, they don’t even want to hear you it’s enough to make you you want to bust! Thank God I have self control. I wish I had the answers to why our heart rates are being so affected, it happened with the levo 75 but in a different way excessive sweating, when I switched to Amour thyroid 60 mcg my heart rate sky rocketed, I Lowered to 45 mcg and now I can’t have a decent nights sleep! Drs can’t even find my veins to draw my blood! Oh and she keeps telling its anxiety, she already knows I’ve been seeing a psychiatrist for 13 yrs and on meds. Nothing I say is right. I will see my cardiologist and if it’s not my heart I definitely will not see her again. Thank you for listening and any thoughts much appreciated.
Test results 10/23/19 -GP seen on 11/7/19
Hello everyone I just go my blood work results and wondering if anyone can take a look and tell me what they think? My TSH looks optimal. And so does my T F 4, although I think my TF 4 should be a lil higher because times I feel hyperthyroid, my T F 3 looks on the lower side.
TSH 2.30 range 2.3-4.2
TF4 1.0 Range 0.8-1.8
TF3 2.9 Range 2.3-4.2
TPO 7 Range <9
Thyroid globulin <1 Range <0r=1 IU/ML
I have Hashimotos disease a know that 50% of people who have this disease ranges may not show up so even though last two ranges are showing I am clear I know I still have this disease. My question is that although these test seem like They are in range according to my Dr! I do experience a fast heart rate especially while in bed ready to sleep, still have some insomnia, and still very constipated this is why I feel maybe my TF4 should be a little higher. I would appreciate any thoughts. Thank you in advance. I am taking adaptenall to lower cortisol levels, 5K vitamin D, 2k vitamin B12 still waiting for the vitamin test. I am also diabetic and feel sometimes I loss control of my numbers. Meaning my sugar jumps high easily. I have been gluten Free for two months and currently on Amour thyroid 45 mcg. Thank you for taking the time to read any thoughts, I would appreciate it.
