Your thyroid is currently hypoactive and is trying to make more hormone which causes increase in size. Your synthroid dose needs to be increased in order to bring your thyroid into proper range.

With Hashimoto's TSH and thyroid hormone levels can fluctuate depends on inflammation going on in Thyroid. As can variations in how the medicine gets from your stomach to your blood. Discuss with your Drs.
