Subactue thyroiditis: If you have this disorder, it is rare. Often follows a viral infection and is felt to be triggered by a virus and is triphasic. First is a hyperthyroid phase, then a hypothyroid phase then it usually returns to normal with time. The TSH and symptoms are consistent wih the hypothyroid stage but it may spontaneously improve.
