I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's ten years ago. Am most comfortable with supressed tsh. Labs say T4 is high, T3 low. Seems as though tsh triggers antibody/symptoms. Whenever they change meds, even a little, symptoms come back hard and fast; weight gain, skin sensitivity, confusion, weepiness, overwhelmed by everything, overactive bladder, constipation, muscle weakness (can't smile or make facial expressions), exhaustion, can't grasp "trick of the light" situations, even stumbled like a drunk on a day I forgot to take meds.
There's power in numbers--anyone else out there this sensitive? Dr. is changing meds tomorrow. Last time I started to loose consciousness with slowed heart rate.
