Arrhythmia and Thyroid
Hope you sre all going well. Well, Im not sure if I am pleased or not. For the past year I've had 152, 000 ecotopic episodes in 12 months. EP said a lot of people can have that many. Some can feel them, some may not feel them, basically dismissed it . 3 weeks ago i started to be treated for hypothyroidism with thyroid medication . I've only had 1100 ectopic rhythms in the past six months. THat's great but Im slightly annoyed , that they didn't do a blood test 12 months to check thyroid. They just kept saying pacemaker's fine ,heart is fine . yet I was getting all the classic symptoms of heart failure.. Its amazing how thyroid medication can make your whole body feel good again. So my point is, if you are breathless, fatigued, cant sleep, feel a lot older than you are, you may want to consider getting a blood test to check your thyroid levels to make sure they're not too high or too low.
