Just wondering if anyone has experienced this- My TSH has been very low since May- it has gone from .04 to .02 as of last week. My free T4 and total T3 are within normal range and I am on 5mg of methimazole. At my appointment at the beginning of June (when my TSH was .04) my endo said that normally he would leave me on the 5mgs based on my labs but that he was concerned about my eyes, so I'm not sure what he is going to do with my meds when he gets the new lab report with an even lower TSH. I have a few hyper symptoms- hair falling out, brittle nails and some fatigue) but my heart rate and weight are fine.

I know that is is normal for the TSH to take a while to respond when you first start the meds, but I started my meds over a year ago and have had a normal TSH a few times (and hypo once as my meds were being adjusted), but more often than not, my TSH has been low while my T3 and T4 are normal.
