      Linda T. . .I am hypo with a TSH that just finally rose from .002 to .111, and yes this could be true for you (but only your doctor can say). After we have been hyper for a long time, the normal hypothalamus/pituitary TSH control mechanism shuts off, like a thermostat in a room that’s too warm. Very often, it fails to start up again when the “room” gets too cold. I have been hypo over two months and it is only beginning to function again. My endocrinologist told me it can take from 3-6 months for some people. He says this is a common occurence.

        Help! I can’t seem to get any answers. I’m on Tapazole. My most
        recent blood test indicates a TSH of .03. Yet, I don’t feel hyper–I
        feel hypo. Cold, more tired, slower heartbeat, heavier PMS/bleeding, etc.
        Anyone else experience this with Tapazole?

        I wanted to cut my dose because my brain is beginning to fog and my
        legs were developing a restlessness, but my doctor says no. Any help,
        comments appreciated.

          This is true on PTU, too, isn’t it? In my report from the Endo it said
          that my TSH would stay low for a while (other blood levels are returning
          to normal). On PTU does that also take 3-6 months, and is this when
          they decide you are in remission or not, when it rises?

          Thanks. Glynis
