I went off the depo provera shot in dec. Didn't use any other hormone replacement therapy. Jan - May had increasing PMS symptoms but in may a new one heart racing / palpitation feelings which became worse the day of my cycle. I was very short of breath I would walk 10 feet and my HR 120 I'd feel dizzy my Bp 160/98 with those few steps. sitting down Bp 140/95 and short of breath. Next day Ekg sinus tach 108. Dr. said don't worry about it come back in 2 weeks and we'll recheck BP. I felt like I needed hospitalization I asked out of desperation for the depo shot in case this was "hormonal" 4hours after the shot I felt like a new person BP 120/80 no SOB. The symptoms remaing were increased energy and heart that felt like it was pounding a little too hard. one week later SOB hands and feet cold heart racing put me on ativan and said it's panic attacks. 5 weeks after all this I asked to have thyroid levels. which appartently are normal TSH 2.01 free t4 1.3 free t3 2.9 Since this started I've lost 15 pounds now 6 weeks without trying. 6-8 bm /day loose pulse still goes fast my hands shake I do feel nervous , I could stay up all night . I don't know if I should pursue more thyroid testing go to and endocrinologist instead of family practice? I'm 39 Any suggestions? I used to feel hypothyroid tired all the time cold hands and feet now I'm like the exact opposite can't stand to be hot off coffee and chocolate since this began.
