Your : Tsh it's to low. Normal levels are between 0.4 -4.0, may vary between labs. Low TSH mean overactive thyroid. If you have anxiety you may be using to much thyroid medication. Consult your physician.

Hypothyroid?: Your symptoms sound hypothyroid, but your TSH indicates that your T4 is normal. However, we do not know what your T3 (liothyronine) is, especially your free T3 (liothyronine) which could be high causing your TSH to drop. Go back to your doctor to have this sorted out with more bloodwork. Good luck to you. If necessary, see an endocrinologist who treaty's thyroid disease.
