Hey from what you are discribing, it sounds like tremmors, were you feel like theres a rummleing in side of you, does that describe what your feeling?, if so I got those too mainly when my meds were still low, as they raised them they went away. If you post your Ft3 Ft4 and TSH with reference ranges those on this forem can help you figure out whats going on. I remeber the first time that happened I litterally thought we were having an earthquake I never in my life felt anything like that before. For you it might just be a medication adjustment. Good luck
While doing meditation, I started hearing palpitation whereever i concentrate on my body. I also start hearing tick tick like sound. I thought I am hearing a divine sound and did ask my teacher. He said it is just mental and forget it. Finally I knew from a doctor that hearing sound is a aural disease and it has not treatment . I am living with this sound since 30years. Another sound is pulsation. whenever i concentrate on my body part, I hear heart beat like sound. It is not disturbing. Till date, I thought, it is due to meditation. As it is not disturbing me, I never tried to learn form doctor or even research in the internet.Sound of tinnitus(ringing sound+ 3 different sounds) are for 24 hours.I am sorry for my tardy presentation. I will welcome discussion on the subject.
Please post your current FT3 and FT4 levels, with reference ranges. You could need adjustment of your thyroid medication - what's your med and dosage? How long have you been on it?
That feeling of pounding heart rate is also caused by anxiety. I had it really bad when I was hypo, but I also got it when I had things going on in my life that I had no control over and really had anxiety. I ended up having to go on an anti-anxiety med until circumstances changed and I was able to get off them.
Have you had an event monitor? You can wear it for days or even weeks until you feel the symptoms you described above. It allows you to press a button and record your heart rhythm whenever you feel these symptoms. Your doctor will be able to get your recordings and tell you whether your symptoms are related to your heart.
If you have tremors or spasms you could try taking a daily Magnesium supplement. Also, make sure to stay hydrated, because it often helps. Have you had your electrolytes checked? Electrolyte imbalances can cause these symptoms too.
Thank you all so much for your time and replies...
@Jenn1302 - No I haven't had that monitor yet... My doctor suggested to have that this month if the palpitations continued... And they have! I will be going back to the doc for a scheduled appointment this coming week...
I'll ask my doctor to check also test for Magnesium levels and test my electrolytes...
@dgmootry & @Barb135 - No anxiety here besides the anxiety caused by the symptoms... I'm generally the type of man that does not get easily stressed or anxious.
My medication was 125mg levothyroxine for the past 3,5 years. The thing is that the specific pill was discontinued from the market (where I live) and then I visited a new local endocrinologist to see what to do.
On 09/13/2014 she ordered only a test of TSH and calcitonin. Results:
TSH: 1.616 μIU/ml (0.200-5.000)
Calcitinin: 2.2 pg/ml (0.0-13.0)
Also ordered an ultrasound and prescribed T4 (levothyroxine sodium - 100mg). After the ultrasound results came in, she suggested an FNA which came back ok (10/03/2014) but then is when all the symptoms got a lot worst.
My GP suggested to quit the levothyroxine for a month, to allow my body to absorb and adjust because the FNA puncturing of the nodules, has probably released a lot more thyrohormones... I repeated the blood tests because the endocrinologist did not check for FT3- FT4 and also did a complete medical checkup and visited a cardiologist too.My tests (10/10/2014) a week after the FNA, with the medications temporarily stopped were:
Fe: 59mg/dl (67-175)
TSH: 1.47mIU/ml (0.35-4.94)
FT3: 2.82pg/ml (1.71-3.71)
FT4: 1.07ng/dL (0.70-1.48)
Anti-T: 7,14 IU/ml (<4.11 negative)
Anti-TPO: 15.49 IU/ml (<5.61 negative)
Feritine: 275,95 ng/mI (21.81-274.66) for this I was also prescribed with Filicine 5mg (Folic Acid)/day
I am scheduled to rerun the tests soon, but it seems that my GP (family doctor) and the 2 different endocrinologists have conflicting ideas as to how to move forward from here...
What do you guys think?
@Dalubaba - My symptoms are def not the result of meditation and I don't feel that it is normal because I never had it in the past. Although I do like meditating I think that any extra focusing on my body will just make the symptoms more apparent. Breathing techniques do help to dicrease the heartbeats but do nothing for the tremors. Even with 80bpm I feel the whole body shaking to the beat!
