Heart Palpitations after eating?

Don't know what to do? Throughout the last 3 years I
have been seeing 2 primary doctors and 1 endocrinologists. My first primary doctor thought my
palpitations might be from my enlarged thyroid she
could feel on my neck, so she ran blood tests, did
an EKG, and an X-ray of my heart to check for any
enlargement of the heart. Also did an ultrasound of
my thyroid. The results were: blood tests showed
levels were out of range on one of them.
EKG was normal, X-ray of heart was normal, and then
my thyroid ultrasound showed that my thyroid was
indeed enlarged, instead of looking like a perfect
butterfly mine looked liked someone stepped on it
and smashed it. She sent me to an endocrinologists.
He did more blood test, I believe just the t3, t4, &
tsh. One more test showed out of range on 2. Then
did more in a couple weeks and said back in normal
range. He says just have a goiter and have it checked
yearly, unless something comes up. Had tests just
checked lately and still normal. But I get tired alot,
have heart paps., especially after eating, and my
neck hurts (aches), and sometimes feels like something
caught in my throat. Should I see a different Endro,
Some people say test don't matter, a person can still
have symptoms. Does anyone know if this is true?
Any input would greatly be appreciated!!!!

Hi Darianna,
Please read the Our Stories topic, and the Information Archive topic.

I had palpitations when hypothyroid. It may also be a copper-zinc imbalance.
Read those and get back to us.
Also, please post your exact thyroid test results.
