Thanks for your concern. I've had these problems for about 3 wks now. The dizziness is periodic throughout the day - happens when I get up or pick up something - happened after some of my workout moves today - sometimes just standing - its over in a few seconds. The tingling of my fingers happens at night. Around my mouth tingling periodically throughout the day like the dizziness. The tightness of the throat a few times a day lasts longer. (throat and mouth can be a few hrs) The tachycardia has improved with the medicine - which had been periodic - but I woke up with it a little while ago.(see below)
Normally my blood pressure is about 114/70 but this morning around 3 - I woke up with 133/78 with a pulse of 109. I am 5'4" weight 125. I do strength training twice a week and have been told my pulse should be in the 70's.
I have been hypothyroid since 1983 (and have been taking for quite some time Synthroid 50mcg and T3 L-thyronin 112.5mcg. )
but current blood tests show my t4 is .66 low (0.82-1.77)
TSH <0.006 low (0.450 - 4.500
I have the reverse t3 problem - but it was ok at 153 (90-350)
Aldosterone was 7.8 in the normal range
Triiodothyronine, free, serum was high at 4.8 (2.0-4.4)
so a little less than a wk ago I was prescribed bio-thyroid 50:85mcg
I also have adrenal fatique and just took a saliva test. My grandmother died of Addisons disease. My female hormone levels are low and the dr wants to start me on the bio-identical hormones but wants to get the thyroid and adrenal problem taken care of first.
