Hypothyroid for 10 years, breathlessness, nausea, thyroxine tablets

Hello doctor, I am a 27 yr old woman. My height is 5.3 and weight 45 kgs. I ve always been very slim and small frame. I have had mild hypothyroid for the last 10 yrs and have been taking thyroxine tablets . For the last 4-5 years I have been having sudden breathlessness any time of the day, even without any physical activity and it lasts for 2-3 hours. I also feel pukish when I feel breathless. I really don t know what the problem is but the breathlessness makes me very tired suddenly and interferes with my work. Please help me.

Thanks for writing to us.
Your symptoms are likely to be related to thyroid hormone disturbance or anxiety. You need to decrease your caffeine and alcohol intake, do relaxation exercises like yoga and deep breathing exercises. In case the symptoms are persistent, you need to get yourself evaluated for other causes and proper investigations under your physician's guidance.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
