I have had an underactive thyroid for about 12 yrs and kept well enough on thyroxine 100mcgs, recently however I became ill (all usual symptoms) and when I had my thyroid function test my GP asked if I was still taking my meds! I saw a endocrinologist privately twice, dose was increased to 125, then discovered I was over medicated as TSH supressed so back to 100mcgs but felt unwell on this amount, so told to alternate the dose 125 one day and 100 on other day. Still feel ill, paincky, lots of heart symptoms, palpatations and irregular beats, now being referred to cardiologist. Although I feel undermedicated and my pulse rate is slow at 51-53 I also have symptoms of being hyper - Has anyone else had similar problems?
