If the thyroid: Test you're talking about was a tsp, then your thyroid level may be elevated. If the suppressed TSH is confirmed, talk with your doctor about treatment with either radioiodine or antithyroid medication. Yes, it can cause itching and a multitude of other symptoms, but can't tell you that they thyroid is definitely responsible until it's been corrected.
