    New - TSH level slightly low

    Due to some fatigue and other symptoms my doctor ordered a tsh and my level was just slightly low. The doctor wanted me to wait 6 weeks and have it retested. I decided to go see another doctor because I've been feeling bad and didn't want to wait that long and he ordered a T3 & T4 that I will be having done today.

    I'm having bouts of fatigue, weakness, heart pounding and night sweats. I am very thin even though I eat more than my husband! About 9 years ago I also had a low tsh and they did a scan that came back normal so I've never been diagnosed with hyperthyroidism, but I'm wondering if that could be causing some of my problems. But I'm not sure that with my test being just slightly below normal that it would be causing the symptoms I'm having.

    Post your free-T lab results when you can. Yes, slightly low TSH can mean hyper-T and you are exhibiting classic symptoms. Hopefully you'll get the new labs soon.

    Hi Clarissa - my tsh was 0.315. I'm not sure what the normal range is for the lab. I just saw the doctor's notes which said TSH slightly low. I did have more lab drawn yesterday, I think they were checking T3 and T4? I will probably get results next week.

    I think the NEW range is (0.3-3.0)
