I've had pulsatile tinnitus for the last year. In the last month I've started experiencing light-headedness when I stand up, which has got increasingly worse. Now I get light-headed on the slightest movement, even sitting down.
I've been taking my blood pressure and it's within normal range but low for me. Today it was 107/66 - for me, that's low.
I put "pulsatile tinnitus" and "dizziness on standing" through symptom checker on this site. One of the results suggested possible hyperthyroidism.
As I have an autoimmune disease (rheumatoid arthritis) and a sister with Hashimoto's, I looked at other symptoms and there are quite a few that apply to me:
- Weight loss
- Heart palpitations
That's on top of the tinnitus and dizziness. So, I've booked an appointment with the GP for next week.
Is there anything I need to ask? Need to know? Should expect? Do you recommend me saying I'm concerned about thyroid issues or just let her work it out based on my symptoms?
Are there any symptoms I should be looking out for?
Thank you for your help.
