Urgent help for my sister with heart palpitations due to low thyroid.

My sister has been to the emergency room three times since June 15th.
Last night she went there again.

Her recurring symptoms are very intense palpitations. She experiences pounding heart beat, tingling in head, face ,arms, with numbess and tingling in hands.She feels weak and extremely anxious and frightened when symptoms occur. She is a worrier. She experienced a traumatic event in February this year when her close relative died suddenly. She is experiencing more heart palpitations since her dose of Levothyroxine was increased from 25 mcgs. , once daily to 50 mcgs once daily. The dose was increased yesterday.

Her TSH test was 32.9 at the hospital lab on Thursday 1st August.
Her ENT specialist also requested TSH test for the following morning.
Results from a different lab showed TSH at 12.9. She spoke to a doctor who thinks an error has been made. He said regardless of the discrepancy the TSH is too high.
No free T4 done yet. Awaiting this test and Hashimoto's antibody test.
All blood work is normal. Electrolytes are normal .
My sister has mentioned that she rarely uses iodized salt and uses sea salt without iodine.
She has eaten many foods recently that slow the thyroid, rutabagas, turnips, almond butter, collard greens and kale.
I would appreciate if someone can help her.

She has chronic mucus in nasal passages, deviated nasal septum and she is currently taking Bactrim, 1 pill twice daily for possible infection.
She has a leg ulcer for 2 months above right ankle. Wound was infected and closed a few days ago. The color is purple with elevated hard scar surrounding a puncture wound caused by sharp bush. Splinters were embedded.
She calls the doctor and he tells her that she has to endure the palpitations because thyroid medicine has not kicked in yet.
Kind regards Declan

Dear Zady101,

Thank you so much for responding to my urgent request. My sister had several episodes of heart palpitations and tingling of head, face and hands yesterday.
After taking her third wet dose of Calcarea Carbonica 30C her symptoms went away and she slept deeply all night.
Today Sunday she still experiences tingling sensation in head, forehead, cheeks and mouth region. She feels weak and dizzy at times.

She took 2 pills of Levothyroxine 0.025 MSG at 6 am and 2 hours later she felt some oppression of chest and some anxiety. She states that she dreads waking up because she does not know if these terrifying symptoms will return.

She would like to know if she can repeat the Calcarea Carbonica 30C wet dose again if the heart palpitations return. If so please let me know the frequency of duration.

My sister and I deeply appreciate your help. We send you love and sincere gratitude. Declan

Dear Zady101,

My sister took 2 more wet doses of Calcarea Carbonica 30C. She had no palpitations today. At 11.30pm she awoke and palpitations have returned.
Please advise her what to do. Does she need to antidote the remedy?
She took a dose at 9.30 pm
She is afraid to take any more doses.
Thank you. Declan

Dear Zady101,

My sister lives in the country and she does not have pulsatilla. Is there any other remedy that might help? She has several remedies but not pulsatilla. It is 2.43 am and her palpitations come and go. She has tried acupressure with brief relief.
Thank you for your help. Awaiting a response as my sister is concerned because she knows that the medical establishment cannot help her. She feels alone.

Best wishes Declan
