Chasing the Cure for a Racing Heart Rate! I’ve just recently been diagnosed as having Supra ventricular tachycardia extreme hyperthyroidism!
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I’ve just recently been diagnosed as having extreme hyperthyroidism, Supra ventricular tachycardia, and anxiety. However, I went from feeling great to feeling horrible over night! In less than a week I was put on beta blockers and anti anxiety meds yet my symptoms seem to be worsening. On top of all of that it’s caused bad depression and even worse anxiety! I cannot seem to get my heart rate down under 120 with the beta blockers, meditation, relaxation, nothing! I’ve been told it’s called tachycardia attacks and when I’m having one my heart rate goes up to 200 or higher I cannot breath, my legs and arms go numb, and I start to black out. I’m terrified all the time that I’ll have another attack! I am scared to take the medicine because the side effects are overwhelming me from nausea and vomiting to confusion and dizziness! I just want to be my old self again I need answers!
