Im still having a difficult time figuring out whats going on and it seems to be getting worse.  Post TT 2/5 Pap Ca.  RAI 131 2/24 TSH 63.03 at time of RAI.  On 3/1 I went to ER for severe rash and elevated HR.  Since have been put on steroids and anahistamines today is the last day and rash has subsided.  Also as of 3/1 changed thyroid meds Levoxythrine  from 150mcg(only took this dose 4 days) to 50mcg 2 a day.  Heart rate, tremors, sweating, cold hot, brian fog, dizzy and what im guessing anxiety, depression, feeling loss of control getting worse.  I wanted to post my labs done in Er as they are the most recent.  I was told what I am feeling is normal  and give it 6 weeks, but its so awfull I just dont understand.  Few more things for history, HR normal until coming out of second surgery for completion of TT.  Seems to be elevated since then 2/5.  Never had problems with this befor.  When my TSH was 68 prior to RAI the symptoms were not nearly as bad as they are now.  I also take flouxitine(prozac) 30mg and Methelphedinate (ritalin)10mg 4 times aday and have done so for over one year due to ADD this has never increased my HR.  Rash was determined allergic reaction to RAI capsule containing sulfa.  

Labs done in Er 3/1 ordered by er doc not my endo but saw endo next day and he was ok with going off these labs

Thyroxine/T4                             10.9           Refference 4.8-13.9UG/DL
T3 Uptake                                    35                                 30-39%
Free Thyroxine Index (T7)           3.8                                1.4-4.5 units
TSH                                                8.68                               0.34-4.82 mIU/ML
Tropin-1                                          <0.04                            0.00-0.07 NG/ML
Everything on Comprehensive Meta Panel normal

2/18 Labs 2 days prior to RAI on LID diet  This primarily done to check TSH for RAI
TSH                                         63.03                  Refference 0.45-4.50
T4 Free non-Dialysis              0.9                       0.8-1.7
Thyroglobulin antibodies <20                               <41
Thyroglobulin                         11                             <56

Everything on Comprehensive Meta Panel normal
Hope this makes sense to some one.

I am a Hashimoto patient but newly diagnosed.  Because of this at the moment I am only on 75mcgs of Levothyroxine.  I am sure this will go up as time goes on.  I am not sure what the highest level will be.  Tomorrow I am having a cholesterol test but am not sure what this will mean in relation to my Hashimoto's.  If it is high will I have to take another tablet?  
I have heard diet plays a part and when I can I do a aerobic DVD at home.  At the moment I am feeling really tired and washed out but I believe this is "normal" with this disease.  
Also I am not sure what I can and cannot eat.  
My last bloods came back TSH 6.8 and T4 only 10 with no antibodies tested! My last antibodies were 1234 when the highest range was 40! Why did my GP not retest this.
I have read that I should be checked for Vitamin D and B12 deficiency and probably have Selenium.  
I would appreciate your views on this.
