Question: Every so often I get a couple really hard heart beats. I have MVP and it isn't that like fluttery feeling. It will be like 1-3 real hard beats that almost make my chest not exactly hurt but maybe pressure in the center and feels warm? My bp is generally low/normal like 80's over 50's-60's. It doesn't seem to matter the activity as it happens even while I'm sleeping and not necessarily if I'm running or exerting. My weight 103. Age 49. exercise and active 5-6 days weekly

Hi,
Thanks for writing to us.
Having VPCs is common in hypothyroidism as well as in MVP. One missed beat or hard beat is only a sensation, then I shall suggest that you should try and ignore them as they're mostly innocuous.
If they are frequent or troublesome or they are producing any other symptoms, you need to be evaluated further and treated accordingly. The first thing I would suggest is to have Holter done and also recheck your thyroid function. If both of them are normal then there is no reason for concern. If they are abnormal please get back to me with reports and I shall suggest what needs to be done.
Hope that helps
Let me know if you have more questions

My mother is 89 and on hospice care for advanced A.D. she has developed, over past year, an indentation on the top of her skull running left to right about three inches back from the front of the scalp. She has several large nodules on her thyroid, but her endocrinologist declined to pursue with needle biopsy or surgery due to her age and advanced disease, A.D. what do you think could be the cause of the changes in the top of her skull, indentation. She also has had significant loss in brain mass in past 12 years per MRI studies ren years apart.

My psychiatrist added 25 mcg of liothyronine, I started taking it Thursday 3-19, to be increased to 50 mcg after one week to augment my depression that has been resistent to other antidepressants. I don t have enough energy to leave the sofa. I also have panic disorder. I have gained about 35 lbs. in about nine months. I m nervous after reading some of the reviews. Should I be. How long can I safely take this medication. Will my thyroid stop producing the harmone naturally if I stay on this medication? When I come off will my thyroid be normal? I have very high hopes that this will increase my metabolism and give me the energy I m lacking and aid in my depression. Thank you
