Hi doctor,

I am 27 years old, and I have multiple symptoms including nervousness, anxiety and weight loss. These symptoms are troubling me a lot. I experience extreme nervousness, even when I do not have any emotional struggles. I have a feeling of having a fast heartbeat. At the age of 16, my blood report showed me a result of subclinical hyperthyroidism. I have done breast surgery. Due to my health concern, I always have my blood tested for thyroid.

Before eight months, I also had done a Holter monitor, which showed my heart palpitations. On my final blood test, my thyroid results came normal. But still, I have the symptoms. I am trying for a baby. But I heard an issue that underlying or undiagnosed thyroid issue could become a terrible one during pregnancy. Do I need to consult an endocrinologist soon? Do these fluctuations are common in hyperthyroidism?

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through the query. It appears that you have had subclinical hyperthyroidism. This condition needs regular follow up tests and consult an endocrinologist even if you are not undergoing treatment for hyperthyroidism. If you plan for pregnancy, then it is necessary to have a constant follow-up with an endocrinologist before and during pregnancy. Yes, fluctuations in thyroid function test are common.
