Maybe Pituitary and not Hashi's???

Hi Guy's
I am so grateful for this site as it makes ou feel as though you are not on your own in this mad world of hormone fluctuations.
I have been on the Thyroid site as I was told that I had Hashi's yet my tests still don't seem to (dot the I's and cross the t's)....
I believe, as do my fellow suffers in Thyroid have hypo and hyper and I have multinodular goiters.
I was reading some articles on how pituitary tumors can cause all the symptoms and blood tests of thyroid dysfunction.
I have just had a couple of extra tests now done as I still am not being medicated and was wondering if anyone could help me in my quest for some possible questions and answers.
I live in Aus so our Lab calculations are a little different...
Anthithyroid peroxidase antibodies - >600 (<35) - done Nov
Anthithyroid antiglobulins - 576 (<115)- done Nov
TSH - 1.71 (0.30-4.00) - done Nov
FT4 - 8.6 (8.0-18.0) - done Nov
ACTH - 3.1 (2.1-11.4)- this was done in September
Clear Creatine - 2.53(1.52-2.5)
Insulin High
Heart palpatations
Temperature problems
Left Eye pain

The endo does not seem to want to do anything until the Thyroid crashes completely and the tests in September (not all I have put on here) have big changes and are "just" in the normal now? In September they were in the range now they are just hanging in there!!!!

Thanks for any help
