Hyperthyroidism: This sounds like a classic hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid).
Most commonly caused by autoimmune syndromes such as grave's disease or thyroiditis, hyperthyroidism always requires evaluation, treatment, and monitoring.
Your family doctor should be able to walk you through this process, and may consult an endocrinologist along the way.

Hyperthyroidism: Tsh is the most sensitive test of thyroid function. Low TSH indicates thyroid hormone excess. An endocrinologist is best for treatment. P.S. Are you sure T4 was 292 and not 29.2?
