Hypothyroidism vs hyperthyroidism

My doctor diagnosed me last year with hypothyroidism and gave me levothyroxine.  When I wen for my 8 week  checkup and it was high but doctor told me to stay on it now I am having symptons of hypertyroid.  I am on the lowest does they have .05.  Could this be something else or thyroid problems.  My other question is do I stop by weaning off the meds or do I go cold turkey?  I have forgotten my pills for a day sometimes but when I miss a day I get real nauseated and feel sick all day.  Please advise.
