Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Overcorrection of thyroid can do this...
Arrhythmia / Panic / Pheochromocytoma may be responsible in a few - Discussion with your doctor and relevant investigations may give clues...EKG / HOLTER (24 to 48 hour ambulatory monitoring) / ECHOcardiogram / TMT (Treadmill exercise ECG) / LABORATORY work-up – may all be necessary

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
