Hair loss w/both hypo and hyper thyroid?

I have had low thyroid for 20+ years and have taken various doses of Synthroid with no problem. About 1.5 years ago, my hair started falling out and I was always cold. Then my doctor increased my Synthroid and all seemed well for about 4-5 months. Then it started falling out again and she told me that I am now borderline hyperthyroid and to cut my dose slightly. Anyone else with similar problems? If so, how did you resolve them? Thanks, Lisa.
