Hypothyroid to hyperthyroid?
My thyroid was tested last June.  I had hypothyroid symptoms.  My TSH was 4.87 which at the time, the lab said was "normal".  (they have since lowered the 'normal' levels to 0.4-4.5)
I didn't go on any medication or do anything for my symptoms.  I had my TSH tested again yesterday.  It is now 0.06.
How can this happen?  Can I be both hypothyroid and hyperthyroid at the same time?  I still have hypothyroid symptoms but now I have a few hyperthyroid symptoms also.
My Free t4 is 1.4 (normal range).
My antibodies testing has not come back yet.
Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Linda

The same thing happened to me when I was put up to high on armout thyroid.  You can be both and that is what I am struggling with.  My Dr. is addressing my adrenals first now and I have Hashimoto's, too.  If your adrenals are insufficient, this can happen.  I would ask your Dr. and soon!

Thanks!  Is there a test that tells if your adrenals are insufficient?

Yes, they can be tested with a saliva test and by blood.
