I have been to the doctors again about my heart racing, and generally fast Heartbeat, sometimes up to 120-130bpm plus some other symptoms, most noteably
Light headedness, slight dizziness, but just a general 'fog' accompanied by feelings in the head (not headaches or pain) but little bursts of movement in my forehead etc.
He gave me a stronger dose of Bisoprolol Fumarate to calm the heart palpitations, and booked me in for some Blood Tests again
I seemed to have had a fast heart-rate in the past few years, which I thought was normal (I have a fast metabolism) but Doctors may think otherwise.
Heart Monitors, tests, scans, blood pressure, all completely normal.
I have had a very small history maybe of dizziness, maybe slight vertigo. When I say small, I mean maybe once every 10 years?
Very lightheadedness, almost about to faint, which causes vomiting (in public), have blacked out before for about 5 seconds? and come round.
So not so much worried, as embarrassed if this happens in a public space.
But after coming back from my GP, and him mentioning Thyroid, I am now just wondering if this could be the cause?
My symptoms for as long as I can rememeber, are these.
Tiredness - and 'looking tired' all the time / could fall asleep on Sofa at the drop of a hat, can never seem to get enough sleep and everything is an effort. Doctor put this down to potential fast heart rate??
Bloodshot / redness / tiredness of the eyes. Do get quite a good average nights sleep though...
Lightheadedness, 'foggy' outlook, everything a bit 'slow' with some feelings in the head (not really headache)
Irritable / no patience / moody
Slight change of Bowel Movement
Bleeding Gums when brushing teeth, which I never really had?
Throat pressure / Choking? - Choked at restuarant recently in public, even though I wasn't sure I was actually 'choking' at the time? Couldn't really work this one out and thought it was un-related, and maybe a panic attack (something you wouldn't associate with me at all).
So from these symptoms, could this be a Thyroid problem?
I have just looked up the symptoms (as my GP mentioned it) and they all seemed to fit (heart rate, tired, throat choking, moody, irritable) but especially when I saw a symptoms video of what I thought was unrelated 'throat restriction / blocking'.
I honestly thought this was a panic attack? Which I have never thought of, let alone suffered from.
But even now in bed, relaxed, or at home, I can feel a pressure on my throat / swallowing?
So at this current time, all i am on is to finish a course of Bisoprolol Fumarate 2.5mg per day, and take some bloods for tests.
Any thoughts as a second opinion would be welcome, so I can go back and try and sort this out once and for all.
