Very little sleep and heart palpitations - any advice on eliminating the palpitations?

tions. I have spoken with my doctor, and there is not much that he can do because there is really nothing medically wrong. My blood pressure, cholesterol, and sugar levels are all normal or below normal. My thyroid is fine. An EKG showed nothing. Though I do have stress, I can't say I have been having panic attacks. I find that if I can get more sleep, the palpitations are less frequent, but this is not always the case. I don't feel as if there is anything wrong with me so to speak, but the palpitations are truly annoying. Changing my lifestyle is not an option at this point because financially, I cannot afford to not work both jobs. Is there a supplement, vitamin, etc., that has been known to reduce or eliminate palpitations?...

How do I get a doctor to treat low thyroid hormone levels?

She is cold all of the time, her fatigue has worsened, and now she is experiencing numbness in her fingers and feet. I am so frustrated with doctors I don't know what to do. She has tried pushing herself to exercise more thinking that this would help (and after one doctor's comment that maybe she should try eating some salad), but then all she can do is sleep for hours afterwards because she is so wasted....

I recently found out that I may have a thyroid disorder. Has anyone lost weight after medication?

ng came back abnormal. I have read that having thyroid problems can slow down and almost shut off a body's metabolism, so I'm thinking this would explain my recent weight problems and inability to lost the weight. I was wondering if anyone who has a thyroid problem but is on medication has had similar weight issues and after the medication was able to lose the weight? how quickly did your body's metabolism bounce back after medication? I'm not too worried about my weight and am just happy to know what is wrong with me. I was just curious if anyone has any personal experience on thyroid medication and weight loss....
