Sudden palpitation

My wife has hypothyroidism. Sometimes her heart rate increases all of a sudden and she starts to panic. It will last for 30-40secs and will get normal. Wanted to know if this is normal for people having thyroid issue

Hi there...Sometimes patients with thyroid disorders can get palpitations. But it is always safe to rule out other causes of palpitations also like anemia, arrhythmia, stress, heart defects, etc. Kindly consult a general physician or cardiologist with your thyroid function tests reports and the medications you are on, for further evaluation.
