Having palpitation at night. Had blood and thyroid test. Can i ask a doctor online?

Hi. I took a blood test 2 weeks ago prior to a scope and my thyroid level was 25.79 above the average of 19. The doctor said that it could be due to the medication that I was on. Last 2 days I did the thyroid test again and it shot up to 32. The doctor asked me a few questions pertaining to thyroid but i dont have the symptoms. However , these 2 night I have been having palpitation at night. Is that one of the symptom?

you thyroid hormone level is above normal and could cause symptoms which include increase bowel movement, nervousness, lack of sleep, palpitation etc. So high level of thyroid hormone is the most likely cause of you palpitation. You will have to contact the doctor for adjustment of drug dose.
Hope this helps
