My muscles are very TENSE-what's up??

Yesterday my body was exceptionally tense-I stay home so there was no stress. My body is slightly tense everyday. But yesterday, my lightheadedness was horrible with it. My heartrate stayed around 96-104 all day, and I took a little extra Xanax to sleep. Today the hr and anxiety are less, and my muscles feel like I worked out all day yesterday. This anxiety and muscle/body tension was extreme for me. Anyone with hypo or hyper experience this? I ordered labs and will have that done tomorrow, along with checking my calcium, as I am on vit. D 50,000/week replacement. I don't know if it's thyroid, or possible calcium reaction three weeks into my vit. D replacement.

Re: My muscles are very TENSE-what's up??

Seems to me I've had the muscle tension especially in my legs. Most likely its your thyroid since you also have lightheadedness and the heart rate issue. The lightheadedness is probably because of the incresed heart rate. Your levels may be high or low. My heart would do that if my levels were too low as well as when they were too high.
