I have been hypo for the past two years and about 6 months ago my dosage was increased to 50 mg of levothyroxine. Everything was going great until about a month ago when I got sinusitis and then I started feeling insanely panicky. Jittery, nervous, anxious, blood pressure was a little high, racing pulse, cannot sleep Etc. Went to doctor last Thursday and she took blood and did an EKG, which she said was just normal sinus tachycardia due to elevated pulse right. She put me on 10 mg of Paxil and a beta blocker. Went back today and pulse was still high, but not as high as last week. So, she increased my beta blocker and has referred me to a Cardiologist just to make sure everything is okay. However, she revealed to me during my blood test that I have antibodies which I ask do you mean like Hashimoto's and she said yes. I'm utterly confused as to what is going on and if anybody can give me any insight it would help me out tremendously because now I am freaking out and think I am dying from heart problems. Much thanks :-)
