Thyroid and heart. As T4 increases, your heart pumps faster and with greater force. Some people are very sensitive to this and hear/feel their heart and this can be bothersome. Some heart conditions, eg mitral prolapse, can exacerbate this. If you were recently started on thyroid replacement for hypo, you should make sure you are not on too much. Talk to your doctor.
