Recently I had a test that indicated that my PTH was 15. For the previous five years it had been about 50. My doctor said it was not a problem.
I am now experiencing significant heart palpitations (pounding and skipping). I wonder if there is any connection between the lower parathyroid numbers and my increased heart palpitations.
I see some anecdotal information tying hypothyroidism and palpitations. Can anyone comment on this?
