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.

I have had many years of migraines and a recent history of hyper versus hypothyroidism - taking no medication for either condition. I have had an ongoing problem with a sense of hearing my heart pound in my throat and head, sometimes painful, sometimes just annoying. Is this due to migraines or the thyroid? I also have numbness in my left leg all the way down to my toes - sometimes worse than at other times. The head pounding is so clear that I can count my pulse . I m an anxiety sufferer and most doctors just tell me I m feeling the effects of that. Is there another explanation? Thank you.
