Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

You need to see a physician as soon as possible for an ECG and some blood exams to rule out an overactive thyroid. The heart rate is too high and is not recommended to be left untreated for long.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi I m 31, about to be 32 I have one son and I am on the mirena which was due to be removed this past may, but I not had it removed yet, lately I have had nausea, hot flashes, headaches, I never have energy, I am over weight, but have never yet had any major health issues, I m not sure what to think other then it s all hormonal, but asking advice, nausea, hot flashes and headaches are something I never normally have and it s been happening now for a while, night time, and day time! What should I do? Is this worth going to the dr for? Could have to do with the mirena birth control? Thank you!

I ve been experiencing nausea for the past couple of weeks, off and on. Also, at times I feel hot suddenly, sort of like a hot flash, but then it goes away. I sometimes get a slight headache. I got sick to my stomach a couple of nights ago. What do you think could be causing this?

I am 75 years old and for about the last three years I have suffered with hot spells in the evening and into the night. I am on a low dose of estrogen and have had my ovaries while in my forties. My thyroid profile was in the normal range, and per my gyn, my hormone level is ok. What could cause this? Oh yes, I used to be very coldnatured and now I’m not.
