    hyperthyroid issue????

    I am new to this website and I am so glad I came across it. I am trying to find out what I can about this problem since my dr is no help. I do have an appointment on Monday to have my questions answered but I was hoping for some help here to so I can be educated when I go in. Last summer I was having severe chronic fatigue. I had every test under the sun done but the only thing that showed up was that my TSH was .830 (they only tested the TSH and not the FT3 or FT4). I explained to the dr that I was so fatigued throughout the day and couldn't function but at night, I couldn't get into a deep sleep. So they put me on Clonzepam (a minor tranquilizer) to help me sleep. They noted my chart to retest the TSH in 6 months. Well, since being on the Clonzepam, I have slept better and felt better during the day. I just retested (again, only the TSH test) and it is now .667. (btw, normal range on lab test is .4 to 4.0). So they said again to retest in 6 months. I weaned myself off the Clonzepam but started having the chronic fatigue again and so the last 2 nights I started taking it again. Still very tired though during the day. Does this sound that the dr is doing what they should be doing or should they be looking into it further? The nurse said on the phone when she called about my results was that there was nothing they could do since I was still in the "Normal" level. Any advice?????
    Thank you!!!
