The first time I ever experienced a "heart flutter" was after my low thyroid had been diagnosed and I started levothyroxine. I asked my doctor about them and she said that if my levels are off that it can happen.
Ive been having intermittent chest pain for the last year to where I've had a 24 hour holter monitor, an echocardiogram, a lot of EKGs, bloodwork, and a nuclear stress test. It doesn't come with physical work or anything like that and feels mostly sharp.
Anyway, I've been messing up my medicine times and taking it with food because I absolutely cannot take it in the morning anymore on an empty stomach. These flutter feelings started Thursday and have been happening multiple times throughout the day. It's to the point where I'm not sure if they're happening or if I'm imagining them.
Could messing up the medicine time be a reason for this heart flutter feeling? Or can low thyroid cause this in general even if we take medicine to keep levels steady? I know I've read HYPER can but I've not seen anything about hypo. I've had so many heart tests this last year I'm just confused as to what could be going on.
