What symptoms can I expect with my TSH levels being very hypo like 28 or so?

Varies: It's really a sepectrum in terms of symptoms in the presence of high tsh. Younger children and teenagers seem to tolerate high TSH more than adults, hence why i struggle sometimes in convincing a 15 yr old girl to take her synthroid (thyroxine) ! ...Read more

Since my TSH came back 9.1 and has been basically borderline for 2 years now along with all the symptoms. Does this most likly indicate hypo?

Yes, hypothyroid: Hi. Yes, I'm sure your doc will give you a prescription for thyroid hormone. However, I would caution that not all symptoms you attribute to the thyroid necessarily are a result of that mild degree of hypothyroidism, so they may not all resolve with correction of your thyroid function tests. It will be easy to treat, and treatment works perfectly. I hope you feel better soon! ...Read more

Have all hypo symptoms but TSH always normal/t4 always below range, but more recently TSH has increased to 5.4 despite a month before it was 1.6??

Testing too much: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, it is unlikely that your TSH jumped from 1.6 to 5.4 in one month without drastic changes on your health. You may be relying too much on lab tests. What are your symptoms? ...Read more

I've subacute thyroiditis, in hypo phase, my TSH getting  better (5.5). Overall feeling better but still get bouts of hypo symptoms. Is that common?

Yes: Glad you're getting better. The nice thing about subacute dequervain thyroiditis is that the pain's usually manageable with nsaids and it self-cures in a few weeks. Good luck, and if you really need supplementation or suppression, your physician can handle it. ...Read more
