Can bisoprolol withdrawal cause hyperthyroidism? I've had a Fast heart rate, aches on my legs, back. And feeling tired from that adrenaline feeling

May feel like it: bisoprolol is a beta blocker and needs to be tapered off gradually depending on your dose and the length of time you have been on it. If you stop it abruptly you will have tachycardia, possible palpitations and feel generally terrible. Yes those symptoms are similar to hyperthyroid symptoms! See your doctor! Your blood pressure is probably high too!!! ...Read more

I have panic attacks, heart palpitations, & severe anxiety. Could I have hyperthyroidism? I'm only 16! I also feel a pulse/twitch in my leg constantly

Need an exam: Your symptoms can be due to psychological factors, but may also be due to physical disorder. You need to see your MD for a physical exam. A simple blood test (T3, T4, TSH) can determine if you have a thyroid disorder. Your leg twitch may be due to panic/anxiety, but may be due to electrolyte imbalance (again blood test will tell). If physical exam is normal, then see a psychologist using CBT. ...Read more
