I have recently been diagnosed with Hashimoto (hypothyroidism). They tried me on 25mcg of one brand of levothyroxine which caused hyperthyroid symptoms, including heart pain within 2-3 weeks. I stopped and they tried prescribing another thyroxine 25mcg tablet which had quite bad side effects and led to heart pain within 7 days. My doctor stopped it again, and I will go see him and have tests in the next two weeks and hopefully check my heart.
It is strange, because I am too young for heart problems and the doses were very small..
My doctors are abroad, and I keep flying out to see them, I have not had good experiences with NHS doctors, they just don't help me, and never find things out in my experience.
I can't keep flying out to see a doctor, I am just wondering if anyone knows a good doctor (endocrinologist) who can deal with a case like mine, I am also happy to go private. I am willing to go anywhere in Britain.
