I recently went to the ER for shortness of breath and found out the only issue was my TSH , which was less than .004. I went to my internist who did additional blood work, which I did not get until after I went to the endocronologist and got the thyroid uptake test. The endo thinks I have graves, but has not gotten the final report from radiology. My second round of blood work showed a TSH of .01 and a FT4 of 1.7. I haven't lost any weight and am a little worried about going on medication. I am 5'1 and 162 lbs. I would really be devastated to gain any more weight. At this point, I'm not sure what questions to ask my endo. I was hoping a could get some advice here.

His little fingers are...
