thyroid problem. i have symptoms but tests says its normal

hi this is sravan,
two years back, i was normal, but not growing physically. poor personality, silky hair, (i had a doubt about thyroid)
once i met doctor and asked him for thyroid test.
then my results became positive, yes it is hyper thyroidsm.
my test results at that time:
t3: 161.42 ng/dl (normal 60-200)
t4: 14.60 ug/dl (normal 4.5-12.0)
tsh: 0.03 uIU/ml  (normal 0.30-5.5)

so then the doctor preferred NEOMERCAZOLE 5 mg tablets daily morning and night,
i continued this tablets for a month. but from there on wards my body started becoming lean.
after two months
i went to test thyroid test again
then my results are
t3: 200.5 ng/dl (normal 80-200)
t4: 17.56 ug/dl (normal 4.5-12.0)
tsh: 0.019 uIU/ml  (normal 0.30-5.5)

it means ...the problem be came high
so then one of my friend suggested me for homeopathy treatment.
then i started taking homeopathy medicine.
after 2 months the thyroid problem became normal. so my doctor advised me to stop homeopathy medicine.
i stopped taking homeopathy medicine. but now the real problem started in my life.

my hair started falling, even i am loosing my eye brows and eye lashes and i am becoming lean and lean
losing weight, i met my doctor several times, and went for thyroid test several times. but the tests says normal,
and my doctor says u r normal. but i still have these problems.
still becoming lean,...now my weight is 45 kg  my age is 25 years
i am loosing my eye brows and eye lashes.
i am loosing my hair when it became 2 cms long...

can any one say what is the problem. i want treatment. now i am very lean. still becoming lean.
my recent thyroid test results are

t3: 141.1 ng/dl (normal 60-200)
t4: 8.02 ug/dl (normal 4.5-12.0)
tsh: 4.38 uIU/ml  (normal 0.30-5.5)

It sounds like you have Graves' disease and have had a significant fluctuation in thyroid levels on the anti-thyroid medication (neomercazole).  The current levels suggested the dose may need to be decreased a little bit.  Often the symptoms lag a few months behind a complete recovery.  Please continue to work closely with your Dr. to keep things in the normal range.  It is not uncommon to see patients have a relatively severe hypothyroidism due to excessive antithyroid drug treatment.  You are not at all near this point currently but a dose decrease may be warranted to avoid it.
