Hi!
Normal TSH values are 0.4 - 4.0 mIU/L. So, 0.3 is low TSH. A low TSH indicates hyperthyroidism and not Hashimotos, which is an autoimmune hypothyroid disorder. You need to discuss this with your endocrine specialist.
If your mother and sister have lupus, then you must undergo complete diagnostic panel for lupus.
You symptoms can be due to either a thyroid disorder or lupus. Anemia is another possibility that should be investigated and so is diabetes. Please consult your PCP (or another) for primary examination followed by proper referral. Take care!
