Tsh low at .04, but peroxidase high at 617. Normal free T3 (liothyronine) & t4. Feel awful with hyper symptoms, not hypo. Doc says wait and see. Agree?

In brief: Thyroid
If your doc is an endocrinologist, follow his advice.
Tsh has an inverse relationship with thyroid activity, i.e. Low tsh=high thyroid activity. The elevated thyroid peroxidase (aka antimicrosomal antibodies) suggests autoimmune hyperthyroid disease, but can also be elevated in other autoimmune disorders like lupus & rheumatoid arthritis & many other conditions. Get 2nd opinion if in doubt.
