I was wondering if someone can help me here. My mother, 55 years of age and always been a hypothyroid patient (runs in the family) recently got her thyroid testing done. Surprisingly, her TSH came way too low. i.e. about 0.005, whereas other values, T3, T4 and Free T4 were all within normal range. She has been having bad insomnia for past many weeks (ever since her TSH values went down), has frequent bouts of heart palpitations, is fatigued and has digestive problems-sometimes diarrhea and sometimes constipation. She also is pretty depressed, most likely because she cannot sleep at night at all. Her endo says he won't start any hyperthyroid medicines because the FT4 is normal. However, it has been atleast 2-3 months, her TSH hasn't moved. She was previously taking hypothyroid medicines but now stopped them. She is extremely perplexed as to what to do. Has anyone here experienced something like this or can guide as to what is happening? I have heard about Subclinical Hyperthyroidism, but not sure if this is the case here? Thanks a lot for the help!
