tsh 0.09 and t4 1.78

I RECENTLY WENT TO AN EXPERT ENDOCRINOLOGIST BECAUSE I WAS FEELING PALPATATIONS AND ANXIETY. THINKING THAT MY THYROID WAS OVERACTIVE DUE TO THE .088MG OF LEVOXYL I WAS TAKING. HE GAVE MY CYMBALTA (THINKING THAT MY THYROID LEVELS WERE GOING TO BE NORMAL). WHEN MY RESULTS CAME IN MY TSH WAS .59 AND MY FREE T4 WAS 1.18. HE RECOMMENDED THAT I GO UP ON THE LEVOXYL TO 100 MCG. DUE TO A NON ACTIVE PITUITARY ADENOMA THAT I HAVE HE SAID HE WANTED TO TREAT ME AS HAVING CENTRAL HYPOTHYROIDISM. HIS PLAN WAS TO GET ME ON A HIGH NORMAL FOR THE T4 AND A SUPPRESSED TSH.  NOW I HAVE BEEN TAKING CYMBALTA FOR 7 WEEKS AND MY TSH IS NOW 0.09 AND MY T4 IS 1.78. I STILL FEEL PALPATIONS OR HAVE A FAST HEART RATE. WHAT CAN THIS BE FROM?  IS IT THAT THE DOCTOR WAS WRONG? SHOULD MY TSH BE HIGHER?  CAN THAT BE THE REASON WHY I FEEL THE WAY I DO?  PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!
