Maybe hyperthyroid: Hyperthyroidism (too much circulating thyroid hormone) will often produce rapid heart rate and insomnia - along with other symptoms like diarrhea, weight loss, and jitteriness. Low thyroid may cause weight gain, sluggishness, coarse/dry skin, and constipation. Ask your care provider about your symptoms. Please do not "freelance" with Cytomel or synthroid, as this may harm you! lgromko md. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I'm hypothyroid with a TSH of 0.01 and T4 in mid range , I have a slow heart rate , i suffer constipation , I do have anxiety am i over medicated?
I am hypothyroid and on 150mcg/day levothyroxine. Tsh was .53 two weeks ago. I am still cold, have low bp, high heart rate, depressed, and insomnia.
Need more lab tests: Tsh does not tell the whole story. Have your doctor check free T4 and free t3. Those are your actual thyroid hormone levels and might more accurately reveal whether you are on enough medication or even the right medication. Levothyroxine is T4 and needs to be converted to t3, so a low free T3 means that you are not converting. Low T3 can cause many of the symptoms you describe. ...Read more

Is heart palpitations part of fibromyalgia? I told my dr. I was having them. He's done 2 or 3 ekgs and all were normal. Also have hypothyroid.
Was taking 150 mcg of Synthroid for over year; recent BW TSH 0.01 had rapid heart rate. On only half tab of 112 mcg for 7d feel better. What happened?
The thyroid makes thyroid hormone, the main one is t4, which is converted in other tissues to t3. An underactive thyroid makes too little thyroid hormone. You feel sluggish, bloated, constipated, cold. It is treated by taking replacement hormone levothyroxine. The thyroid also makes calcitonin, which is involved in calcium metabolism, but it is a weak hormone in ...Read more
