My levels became high within one week I dont understand?
Post TT and Post RAI131 Just starting thyroid meds

3/1Emergency room they ran basic labs this was 4 days post RAI 131  Tsh prior to RAI was 63
Thyroxine/4                       10.9              range 4.8-13.9
T3 uptake                            35                range 30-39
Free Thyroxine index (T7)  3.8              range 1.4-4.5
TSH                                     8.68   H          range 0.34-4.82

3/9 Emergemcy room labs
Thyroxine/T4                        14.2 HIGH
T3 UPTAKE                         42    HIGH
Free Thyroxine index (T7)     6.0HIGH
TSH                                      7.66 HIGH

2/27 Post RAI statred150mg levothyroxine
3/1  ER lower to 100mg of levothyroxine
3/7 call endo ofiice very hyper feeling is this normal they say increase to 150mg levo.
3/8 symptoms getting worse Endo wants to see me go to his office and he says my symptoms are not thyroid related.  straight to the ER.  
Coclusion they lowerd the dose of levo. back to 100mg.  and completly stop my Ritalin.  Which I had hasked every doctor if I should stop taking ritalin for my ADD when my symptoms got worse.  4 different doctors said absolutly not.  
Wow it only took 2 ER visits and a buch af changing meds over and over,  severe heart rate led to tremors and anxiety  to finally get someone to agree to drop the Ritalin.  Prior to my Thyroidectomy me and ritalin worked just fine, did not speed me up just leved me out.  Now the Thyroid is gone and Boom Im wired.

Still concerned about the labs why would all my levels except for TSH now be in the high limits when a week ago they were normal?
