Unfortunately I'm finding it very difficult to understand your question.

Could you please post your test results and the reference ranges so that we can comment on them. You can get this information from your GP. He MUST give it to you. Once we know what has been tested we will have a better idea about what is going on. Has he carried out all of the tests mentioned on this page from the main Thyroid UK website?

You might also like to look at this page from the main Thyroid UK website and decided whether there are any medications listed there that you are taking:

There is a lot of other information on the main Thyroid UK website regarding thyroid replacement options for example which may also be of interest to you.
