Can someone please tell me if it is normal to feel really out of breath and shaky and worn out from the unrelenting high heart rate? I have an enlarged thyroid - bigger on one side - which is making it difficult to breathe and swallow. I don’t think I have slept more than an hour or two at a time in the last 2 weeks. I’m scheduled for ultrasound of the thyroid in 2 days but I actually feel like I literally could explode before then!!! And then it will be another few days after that before my blood work comes back. The icing on the cake is the swelling in my neck feels like I am carrying a brick around in my throat. I can’t lay down to sleep because it makes it feel like my head is like full of fluid or something if I bend over or lay back it feels like this “fluid feeling” starts to just pound all around my head and throat almost like a headache. A real intolerable heaviness of sorts.
Has anyone been treated with anything before the actual diagnosis of hyper thyroid to relieve these symptoms?? I am already on verapamil to reduce my heart rate associated with high blood pressure and it seems like it’s not helping anymore.
