I had a TT for benign multi-nod.with symptons of toxicity, 3 yrs ago. TSH=<0.1 T4=1.26.
7 mo after the surg LT4= .100mcg. TSH=.85 T4 1.51 Fast,hard pounding palps started nightly which led to extreme heat intolerance led to 3.5 day of undiagnosed A.Fib. This had left me with PVC's maybe every 1-3 min MD cut LT4 to .50 mcg=TSH 19.08 T4.75. Slowly raised me to .88mcg plus .44mcg on Fridays. TSH 3.62 T4.97.
2011 TSH .17(L) T4 1.24. dose lowered to .88mcg qd. During that year I suffered from arthritis symptoms hands, feet. 10/13/11 TSH 1.46 T4 1.05.
Presently all arthritis symptoms gone, except synovial cyst(thumb). But now the PVC's are every 2-4 beats and resting HR is 49-51, I used to be 72BPM. I do feel the irregularity throughout the day, worse at night.
In your learned opinion is this thyroid related? Should I go to a MD? Which speciality? I saw a cardiologist early on, who said my excellent health I shouldn't worry unless I pass out, then I should call an ambulance.
Too much thyroid hormone can increase the risk of irregular heartbeats. If the TSH is still low, this needs to be considered. However the last TSH on October was normal. It would be worth retesting of TSH at this point to confirm that it is not low and possibly contributing.
