Post TSH Level ? -- a little confused

I had RAI done in November of 2002 for HyperT. since, have had my doseage of Levothroid upped several times. My two most recent labs have my T4 w/in normal range, my T3 a little low and my TSH pretty high...

T4 - 1.3
T3 - 80
TSH - 10.

I just always thought that if my T4 & T3 got in range, my TSH would follow?? What kinds of problems might having a high TSH cause? I recently starting having panic attacks... do you think TSH could have anything to do w/ this?

Thanks to anyone who responds w/ comments or answers!

Brande-

Do you have either the normal ranges for your test results or the levels of your free T3 and T4 - those make interpretation much easier. MEEP is the resident expert who is very good at deciphering these results.

I too have had weird levels. My total T4 is high, but so is my TSH. However, my free T4 is low - see why it is important to have all the numbers? I know that I am clinically hypothyroid but have had all kinds of funky hyper symptoms for many months now. It gets blurry to me as to what causes what. But I've seen many others here with off thyroid levels complain about anxiety as a symptom!

Wishing you the best!
Hugs,
Kael
