Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. Change from hyperthyroidism to hypothyroidism is not uncommon but the reverse warrants an investigation. It would be prudent to see an endocrinologist. Wish you good health!
