    Question Elevated hormone labs/ low TSH

    I am a 34 yr old female, new here and thankful I found this board as I have so many questions. I won't overwhelm anyone willing to help though.

    9 years ago I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism, had an uptake which found hot nodules. So, a partial thyroidectomy was done. Have had my levels checked every 6 months since and was never put on medication.

    Recently I have been feeling depressed, anxious, intolerance to cold, sweating more than usual, trouble sleeping, and major weight loss (mainly due to stress). Saw my PCP who did a full work up of labs. My TSH in March was 0.755. All other labs were normal.

    In April, I had a pap done with a woman in the practice I go to. She did a breast exam and asked about some discharge in my nipple. I said I'd had it for a long time. She ordered some hormone labs and a mammogram (also have history of breast cancer in first degree relative).
    Labs I had: FSH & LH were normal
    Progesterone normal
    Testosterone serum was 82 (elevated)
    Prolactin was 30.2 (elevated)
    DHEA-Sulfate was normal
    TSH- 0.455
    T4-Free 1.10

    Been trying to google why these labs would be abnormal, but all I really come up with is PCOS. I really don't have any of those symptoms. My menstrual cycle is always 28 days, and I'm not over weight. Could this be a thyroid issue?? Just not understanding why the testosterone is so high!

    Mammogram came back normal, as well as an ultrasound.

    Thanks!
