Unfortunately, you have to push for treatment. I was in your exact situation, slightly hyper, felt like hell, so I had to throw a fit to get antithyroid medication. It's made a huge difference in my life. I'm hyperthyroid again b/c I'm pregnant but atleast I know what's wrong with me. I was in your situation for years being told I had clinical depression -- but thyroid was the root of my problem, not depression. Get copies of your test results and keep at it. Good luck.
Well this all sounds so familiar. Do you have any idea what a high T3 is? All I was told was that my T3 is over 200, that I have mild hyperthyroidism and I was given medication. I had a TSH done 3 years ago and I assumed it was normal since I never heard from my doctor, but I've had the same symptons for years. They are pretty much the same symptons you have. The only kicker, I'm considered morbidly obese and I thought hyper meant you loose weight. Go figure!
I never had to push for treatment at all. Matter of fact, I was given medication before I even knew that my t3 level was elevated, but what information I've gotten on hyperthyroidism, I got for the web and not from my doctor. I also was diagnoised with clinical depression and I believe that this may have been my problem all along.
