I have a heart condition with thyroid

If the endocrynologist told me not to run track, but it s my senior year in high school, because my thyroid is out of wack and my heart is palpatating, should I not run? I was thinking about not telling my mom and running around town while she s at work. They told me there is chance of going into cardiac arrest , should I lay off on the working out until I know more or should I do what I want and stop if it really is as serious as they think? Please help if your opinions are nice and you really want to help. ;)

Hello, Registered Nurse here; Please please please follow your advice of your endocrinologist. Thyroid conditions can play havoc with your body and cause serious and fatal heart arrhythmia's, your endocrinologist might be over cautious, but it's better to error on the side of over cautious, than under cautious. Cardiac nurse x24 years. Not trying to scare you, but forget the track at present time, not worth the risk. Please give your body time to adjust, your physician the time and opportunity to gain control of your thyroid, and yourself the care you need. I do want to help you and please follow your doctors guidelines. Thank you and God Bless.
