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.

If you look through this link showing typical hyper symptoms, which of these symptoms are you having?

Please post your thyroid related test results and their reference ranges shown on the lab report.
