I have been having mixed symptoms of hyper and hypothyroidism. It's been almost a month since I started feeling depressed , anger, crying,heart palpitation and memory loss, cloudy mind and focusing problem . I've had hypothyroidism for past 17 years  .  Over the years my dose of Levotyroxine has been increasing almost yearly. The last dose I was on for about 6 months was 188 (I took two pills100 plus 88). After doing the last test 20 days ago , the doctor decreased it back  to 175. In the past , after taking the new dose a feel better in a coupe of days. But this time I am just not getting any better. I have no energy, have been in bed for days now. I went to see endocrinologist yesterday, and he thought I should continue taking the 175 dose for another month before he will see me again and do another test.  6 months ago I was on 175, and it was increased to 188 now back to 175. My lab test shows TSH level 6.090, T4-8.3, T3-110,Free T4-1.75, TPO 600, UTSH 0.75. Please help!!! I am  desperate . Do you think I am not taking enough or taking too much ?
P.S. The doctor thinks I have Hashimotos based on TPO level of 600.
