Pulse running through body when lying down. Taking Thyroxine but no vitamins. Is it the cause?

I was 'Googling' to see why I get like a pulse running through my entire today when I lay in bed. I have just read your reply below and notice that the person is also taking Thyroxine. I work full time leaving the house at 7.30 and getting in at 6.00pm and this often happens when I am 'shattered'. I read that people who take Thyroxine often need B12 injections and you mentioned that it may be lack of vitamins, do you think this may help?

Hi,

Pulse running could be of various causes:

- anxiety/work overload/stress - a normal reaction to them
- high blood pressure - monitor blood pressure, do ECG and cardiac echo
- orthostatic hypertension - oscillations in blood pressure when laying down or standing up (check further with cardiologist)
- thyroid and related medications

If you are have work overloaded and stressful recently, that could be the cause in your case. If this is the case, I advise to:

- avoid coffee, energetic drinks or other stimulants
- avoid fatty, sugary, high calories foods
- drink more water
- take chamomile tea

All the best!
