  • Thyroid Problem & A Fib

    I have just been diagnosed with an Overactive Thyroid & told that this is causing my episodes of A Fib.
    I switched to a new Internist who did extensive blood work (he ran the thyroid 2x to be sure).
    I had a horrible bout of A Fib, this past week, prior to my results of the 2nd bllod test coming back. I'm scheduled to see an Endocrinologist very soon, to treat my problem
    I wanted to alert everyone, who suffers with A Fib, to check this out! I feel so hopeful now, that this problem with A Fib can be solved!
    There is 1 good side effect to an overactive thyroid - weight loss- but I unfortunately skipped this & went to all the BAD side effects!

    I have the overactive thyriod too and alot of bad runs with the atrial fib to go with it, and I have lost over 40-50 lbs and my levels have came down now and I am being treated with tapazole and recently been put back on the amiorone after the afib got so bad. The overactive thyriod can make you feel very ill in the long run if not treated, I hope everything goes well for you.
