I have been on thyroxine 100mg for the last three years regularly doing blood test without any issues or notifications from my nhs doctor to say anything was wrong.
I started having weird intermittent feelings in my head like shivers going from my neck to my forehead.
About a week later I woke up with a stiff neck.
Over the last week I have felt what I can only describe as inflammation building up on my forehead my eye brow have swollen and now cover my eye lashes. I feel like every day the inflammation is creeping down the front of my face. It seems like Peripheral neuropathy.
At the same time I am being woken up in the middle of the night with a rapid heartbeat which I can only describe like I have two hearts beating at the same time and it feels like the whole bed is wobbling and then I'm having panic attack because of the unknown causes
I could only phone the doctor at the moment nobody would see me they prescribed me amitriptyline 1 week ago, I have slept better except last night I still woke with fast heartbeat hot sweats and panicking I nearly called an ambulance.
Because this has been going on for a while I decided to pay privately and got a blood test as well.
It show my TSH is 7.81 but strangely my free T4 is also high 26.5
I was advised to stop my 100mcg of Levothyroxine immediately and to reduce to 50mcg in 3 days time.
I currently just feel like a bundle of nerves, dizzy, shaking and the weird sensation in my neck and head like I said inflammation around my forehead/face
I wrote a letter to my nhs doctor asking for urgent referral to endocrinology but he rejected my request due to the corona virus.
I just am panicking a bit any help or advise would go a long way to help ease my anxiety and nerves.
