Recently I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism. This was after having blood tests done for a variety of symptoms, including palps, tachycardia, difficulty doing physical activity, shortness of breath, chest pains, coughing, etc. Just 20 minutes ago I was coughing in a croupy way, and after a while my heart rate elevated. I became short of breath, and I had a few episodes where it felt like my heart stopped and I couldn't breathe for a second. I stood up and walked up stairs and that was enough to give me a tachycardial episode, requiring me to lean against a wall to wait till it calmed down. After some more shortness of breath and another episode where it felt like my heart stopped, I'm feeling a little better, but very anxious (I have anxiety).I am wearing an event monitor but I didn't capture the bad part of it, as I started recording too early. I have a doppler in a week or two and a stress test in about a month, but I honestly do not feel safe at all. Can these heart episodes really be explained via just hyperthyroidism? I was already in a hospital for an episode where all my limbs went numb and tingly following bad chest pain that spread up through my neck, but the blood test and ekg they did there had no adverse results. They said it was not a cardiac event and that it was probably just anxiety. Opinions? Suggestions? I could really use some help here.
