Palpitation and low TSH?

I had palpitation suddenly when my son was 6.5 months old in Oct 99.  My GP ran a thyroid test for me and TSH 0.48, the rest normal.  I visited the endo in Nov 99 and TSH 0.05, still, the rest normal.  No antibodies were found.  The endo prescribed me INDREAL.  In Dec 99, I did the thyroid test again and TSH 0.1 and the rest still normal.  I visited another endo which didn't think I had thyroid problem.  But none of them could explain me why I had low TSH and palpitation!  Is it PPD?  Is it really not my thyroid?  Is there any way can ease my palpitation?  Pls advise!  Thanks.

These two things are likely unrelated in your case.  

Continue the inderal as advised.

I used to be hyperthyroid for many years.  And now I am
suddenly very hypothyroid.  I am taking Eltroxin 100mg and
my hormone levels are normal now.  However, I have sank
on my TSH levels (level now 0.1).  I am pregnant now.

Will the low TSH levels affect my baby?

I have a headache for the last seven months. I did every test immaginable to find out the reason. Lately I did a blood test and my TSH turned very low; 0.24. What that mean and are there any relation between low TSH and headache.

I am being treated for an overactive thyroid. All tests came back normal but TSH is .02  The doctor called this supressed TSH? Would that still cause some weakness in legs, shortness of breath & slow weight gain?
