Had overactive thyroid. Effected heart. Tested iodine. Started chest pain. Why?

My name is Nikki. Long story short, for 20 yrs I had an over active thyroid and didn t know it. Because it effected my heart I ve seen dozens of cardiologist , all just about killed me. Lots of test with iodine . I no longer have a thyroid but I still have way too many PVC s. At the peak I was having over 58,000 of them in a 24 hour period. I know they got bad again last night because I was riding my bike up a hill and I started getting the chest pains. The chest pains are still lasting this morning. I wish there was something I could take or a doctor I could find that could help me.

Hello Nikki

I think you should under go full cardiac check up with cardiologist and tests are like ECG, Echo & TMT may be done. with this test your problem may get corrected. Your cardiologist may suggest you for EP study. Which is necessary in your case.

Thanx for your query
Wish you healthy heart
