It's been a while since I've visited and I find myself in need of some helpful advice again.
I had a total thyroidectomy in June 2003 and it seems my life has slowly gone downhill since! I'm 43 y/o, going through menapause, the weight is slipping back on because I'm letting old habits come back and I don't exercise anymore, and I'm literally TIRED all the time!!
My Endo. moved my syntroid up from 88mcg to 100mcg because he found my tsh level too low and now after my last blood test, he said I was fine. I don't remember the #'s.
Well, I have a new symptom.....actually I experience before around Apr./ May and it went away. But it's back again and it concerns me. I don't know how to explain it exactly. I can feel my heart beating....sometimes it feels like light flutters, other times like it's speeding up and ever so often, it thumps hard. Once there was a dull ache, but nothing major. I tried a Tagament to see if that would help.....and I don't get heartburn. Yesterday, I was fine...today it's back again.
My Dermatologist suggested a Cardiologist to me. I thought maybe just going to my regular GP, but the nurse said that they would more than likely refer me to a cardiologist too. I guess I'm trying to put it off until I'm sure there isn't something else causing this....like my thyroid (or lack of!) I'm wondering if I should just go ahead and see a cardiologist or contact my endo.
Any ideas or advice??
