Sorry, vague. But I've woke up feeling...anxious? Like how I imagine people feel when they drink too much coffee (I don't drink caffeine, tea sends me loopy).
I was on 70mcg of liothyronine per day, had my annual blood test 3 weeks ago. I thought it would come back under because, regardless of what I do, I'm struggling to lose weight and my eyebrows look a bit thin. Anyhow, it came back:
TSH: 0.03 [0.27 - 4.2]
FT3: 15 (3.1-6.8)
Doctor reduced my meds so I've been reduced back to 60mcg per day and do repeat bloods in 3 months. I should add that I asked if the bloods were high because I took all my meds that morning, 3 hours before the test and she said no. I was just surprised it came back this high.
My problem, and may not be a problem(?) is that my resting heart rate has dropped from 63 to 58 and the past few days it's been dropping to around 49. I only notice it because I get lightheaded and have to take a seat. My blood pressure is a little on the low side so I initially assumed it was that until I spotted the change in my rhr. I haven't increased exercise or fitness levels in the past 2 weeks, the only change has been meds.
Anyhow, like I say I woke up today almost in a state of panic? Heart was racing up at 120 for no reason. As I sit here typing it's back down to 55.
I don't think I've experienced heart flutters/issues before but these past 2 weeks I have.
Sorry...really rambling! I get B12 injections every 3 months (due another at the start of May), and in February they checked my iron levels and they were good (I did have a bit of iron anemia in 2019 but been on top of it since). Haven't checked VitD levels but I've been taking a supplement since I joined this site pretty much.
Not really sure what I'm asking? Maybe about people's heart experiences? I guess it's nothing and will settle down? Thanks all x
