Was out cycling 4 weeks ago and my HR went through the roof. I'd had a case of A Fib 18 months ago during an IM. After visiting my GP it was put down to either too much cafeine or not enough electrolytes. Turns out I had an overactive thyroid!!!
I started taking Propranolol (beta blocker) and Carbimazol. Been taking the beta blockers for 3 weeks and the carbimazol for 2 weeks. I've noticed a huge difference already. Previously, my resting HR was 104bpm. It's now down to 72bpm. I was sweating like a pig with the slightest effort before taking the carbimazol. That's now stopped.
Anyway, my question is...
Can I carry on exercising ? My GP seems to think so. But i've read on a few forums that exercise is not advised until the thyroid issue is under control.
