Heart flutters, chest pains and my thyroid
I'll start from the beginning, I'm a 29 year mother of 2, 5'5" 160lbs. I had a hysterectomy over a year ago because of endometriosis. About 8 months ago I was having pain in my neck/thyroid and soon after started having flutters and chest pains. I was diagnosed with a goiter and am being treated for hypothyroidism and also for high blood pressure and a fast heart beat. The meds seemed to be helping with the flutters and pains until about a month ago. I've had ekg's, echo's, stress tests, lab work and all coming back fine. Is it possible these new problems are connected with the endometriosis? I'm afraid things are being over looked.
Has your thyroid been re-checked since you started treatment? These palpitations could be caused if you take too much thyroid medication.
The chest pain are more likely related to the palpitations. You can read more here:
I don't believe endometriosis has anything to do with this. Remember also, you had a hysterectomy, so it should be all gone!
Hope this helps,
