What causes severe fatigue and dizziness when diagnosed with tachycardia?
Hypothyroidism need to be ruled out.
Thanks for your question.
Noted your concern.
All your symptoms may be due to low functioning of Thyroid (Hypothyroidism) which can be ruled out by doing T3, T4, TSH.
After going through your clinical details I may suggest -
- Consult general physician for detailed physical examination.
Complete Blood count.
T3, T4, TSH.
Liver Function Test.
Urea, Creatine, Electrolytes.
- Depending upon clinical examination and above test results there may be need for further evaluation.
Hope this helps you.

Do you suggest my iron levels are low since I am having all the symptoms of that? If I would need to get my iron level up what do you suggest like vitamin wise or chin foods would get the levels up faster? Since I am wanting to feel better ASAP. Also, what are the side effects of taking b 12, do they cause the heart rate to go higher? Since I am trying to stay away from anything that will make my heart rate go higher.
Also, do you suggest going to a electrophysiologist or a cardiac Doctor since my general physician keeps wanting to send me to one of those. But the last time I went they did not do anything for me and only found I have palpitations.I'm not sure if I stated it anywhere but I am 21 years old.
Want to know more.
Before commenting on thyroid status I want to know your previous reports. Also thyroid function may get affected over a period of 6 months.
Yes anemia due to Iron deficiency can lead to these type of symptoms but before taking correcting measures one need to know Serum Iron level.
Complete Blood Count with Red Blood Cell Indices gives indirect information about Iron deficiency or one can do complete Iron Studies (Serum Iron, TIBC, Ferritin).
Vitamin B12 supplement donot have direct effect heart rate.
Also it usually do not have any major side effects.
Before commenting on need to consult Electrophysiological study one need to know ECG finding during episode of palpitation, detailed physical examination.
Holter's study may be useful prior to Electrophysiological study.
Considering your age and clinical profile anxiety is most likely cause for your symptoms but before labeling it physical examination and above mentioned test results are important.
Try yoga, relaxation techniques.
Hope this helps you.
For the blood count test and holster study, can these be completed by my nurse practitioner? Or do I need to go to a specialist for those two tests.
I am just wanting to feel better and do what will help me ASAP. The light head XXXXXXX makes me tired I wake up tired and go to sleep tired. Since I am a athlete I need to work it every day but can't since I have no energy.
Also, if anemia or my thyroid was the problem, what is the treatment? Is it a one time thing? Or do I need to do stuff the rest of my life. Can I cure it if it is mild? I apologize, I have done the holster test and EKG before. They only showed palpitations at random times.
CBC can be done from any pathology Lab.
Complete Blood Count is a blood test you can get it done from any pathology laboratory.
Anemia may be due to some underlying cause in female it is most likely due to iron deficiency but depending upon clinical evaluation other causes should be evaluated if suspected.
Depending upon underlying cause and level of anemia treatment can be planned.
In mild anemia nutritional supplement of Vitamin B12. Folic acid and Iron for a period of 3 to 6 months usually suffice.
Also treatment of thyroid problem will depend upon thyroid hormone level.
Duration of treatment will depends upon clinical evaluation.
Hope this helps you.
