I have recently been having racing heart in the middle of the night that is waking me up every night. I am supposedly hypo right now but, my antibodies are really high and I have been having some dizziness and anxiety during the day. I beleive the palps are from thyroid attacks at night since I do not have them during the day. I will have them for 5 days straight then they will go away and then come back again.
I have never had a racing heart in the middle of the night for hypo. Hypo for me is always tired, weight gain sleeplessness. I tried to raise my levels but I immediately suffered from more insomnia. I am not going to put myself through more insomnia because I believe that these symptoms are related to my thyroid. I have to have more information than that to work with. I have to say I'm tired of self medicating and self doctoring.
No, I believe my heart rate being elevated at night has to do with something else, perhaps I'm going hyper at certain times of the day even though my tsh is highish. Buy the way my ft3 and ft4 are in range, just in the low range.
Could it be the prilosec enhancing my throid meds? I seem to be bouncing between sloppy palpitations and rapid heart rate, I really don't believe the palpitations are related to the thyroid anymore. I find it harder to believe the heart rate is related. I took 1/2 tablet (25mcgs) and I went from a TSH of18 to 6.25 how is that possible? I'm afraid if I increase by even 1/4 tablet more I will be hyper. Besides as I mentioned earlier any increase at this point increase insomnia.
