    Have you had your FT4 measured?

    Your TSH is low, but only just.

    Antithyroid medication is strong and can have horrible side effects. This is why they’re being cautious, they only want to put you on it if your really do need it.

    Each lab has different ranges for low and high.  A lot of labs ranges are from 0.40 to 5.00.  If you are having symptoms, I do think you need something.  You might want to try regular L-carnitine  at a dose of 3,000 mg per day.  It raised my TSH from less than 0.001 to 0.12.  However, I was on Methimazole at the time at 10 mg with a TSH of  less than 0.001 and I have always used L-Carnitine with a low dose of meds.  I would not let that ride though if you have symptoms.  Go to an Emerg Dept.  They might start you on meds because you have symptoms.
