My TSH is Fluctuating TSH way out of range.

Hello,

  I had my TSH tested in August and it was .03 (range .5- 5.0) and I just had it tested again (In January) and it came back 15.60(same range) . I also had my t3 free t3 and t4 tested and they came back perfect. I have lost 12 lbs this month (I went from 133 to 121.. I am a 29yr old female) and I am losing hair. My resting pulse is around 105. I got a referal to see an endocrinologist but its going to take some time to get my appt. Any ideas on whats wrong with me?? Is it normal for my TSH to fluctuate like that? What tests should I have done?
Thanks so much,
Genny

Looks like a transient thyroiditis but the current symptoms are that of hyperthyroidism (weight loss and high resting pulse) while the high TSH suggests a hypothyroid phase (while the low TSH in august suggested hyperthyroidism).  In these cases, we often follow the trend to see if treatment is needed. Would also test thyroid antibodies, as this may be an autoimmune thyroid problem.
