Brief Answer: Perhaps it is the thyroid... Detailed Answer: Hi, I am glad that heart and lung evaluations are normal. I hope the doctors also have exclude anemia through basic hemogram tests. In this context, symptoms of palpitation, increased body temperature, breathing issue with or without anxious state may be due to overactive thyroid state. At least the TSH value is suggestive of hyperthyroid condition. I would order for complete thyroid function test - serum T3, T4, free T3 and free T4 along with thyroid antibodies - thyroperoxidase antibody and thyroglobulin antibody. Your endocrinologist will know about these tests. Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications. Regards
