hyperthyroid, fast heart rate, hypertension

From: kurnia - 6 years 21 weeks ago

I have a thyroid surgery on 2001, after the surgery my thyroid hormon level are normal. Until on january 2010, I tested my hormon which results TSHs 0.011 uIU/mL , T3 2.09 ng/mL , T4 12.91 ug/dL
I also have another test, which is FT4 0.93 ng/dL and TRAb < 1.0
Sometimes I also experience my heart rate faster than usual, not too fast I think, about 90-95 bpm.(Usually about 80-85 bpm)
My question is, is my faster heart rate is caused by thyroid problems? Is this fast heart rate or my thyroid problems can cause hypertension (155/100)? (I never have hypertension before)
If there's anyone can help or having the same experience, pls help.

Kurnia, in responce to your question, yes, hyperthyroidism kicked my heartrate to overdrive and was put on meds to slow it down and also my bloodpressure went up and high cholestrol. I am awaiting surgery for total thyroid removal. Hope this was some helpful.
