Only been 2 weeks since last lab that was 251 can it come down that far that fast after years of trying to get it down? Prior lab was 6 weeks ago and the TSH level was 218? I was noticed that my heart skips a beat asn average of 5 times per minute. I am tired of being told it is nothing to worry about and that I will feel better once thyroid is under control. I will call my endorinolost, My reg MD will not make a recommendation to a cardiologist.
