I was just diagnosed with this. All this time doctors have been treating me with post partum depression and yesterday they finally figured it out! I went to the doctor and my heart rate was beating at 142 beats a minute. They did blood work and put me on heart medicine to slow it down. I return early next week to discuss what to do. I thought I was very depressed and suddenly I couldn't control any emotions. I was shaking all over and my heart was racing. I was always so hot even when it was cold outside.I had enough and went to the doctor and after a few simple test she diagnosed me with a hyperactive thyroid. I was easting a ton and kept loosing weight so finally I can get back on track! They say that this is very rare only 5% of women you has been pregnant will get this. I will keep everyone posted on my situation. Has anyone else been diagnosed with this?
