Dear Sir/Madam
Thanks for your query.
You had an episode of palpitation with lightheadedness. This can be due to a rhythm disorder of heart but at times gastric upset can produce such symptoms. A dose of levothyroxine, higher than required, may at times be associated with such episodes. I would request you to see your doctor/physician, get yourself examined and proceed accordingly.
