Hypo: Tsh of 131 suggests hypothyroidism, but your symptoms are more consistent with hyper. I would suggest seeing an endocrinologist.

Symptoms suggest: Hyperthyroidism but TSH level suggest hypothyroidism. Get tested for pheochromocytoma as well .Follow up with your endocrinologist for comprehensive care!

Depends: Have thyroid antibodies been checked? Also adrenals need to be checked with 24 hr cortisol testing. Palpitations may be from adrenals trying to compensate for thyroid. More info on: http://sufairchild.com/ENDO/thyroid.htm
