Hypothyroidism - How does that sound for a fancy word? This past weekend I was continuing to feel palpitations including skipped heart beats, so back to the clinic I went and after double checking me and my heart, and finding nothing wrong, the blood tests that had been taken were gone over so as to explain to me what the results meant and low and behold, one of the results - which for some reason had not been noticed before - was way out of balance. I'm now on meds for an under producing thyroid which in turn may be what is causing my palpitations. I was told it will take up to three weeks before the meds make much of a difference but I think they already are as I've felt better since I started taking them. I get to go back in six weeks for a check up. - Keep praying :) and Praise the Lord for the diagnoses.
