Low tsh levels

Thanks Dr., for responding to me last question, about the hashimoto's and my current overall feeling of exhaustion.
You said that my tsh should be .3- 2.0
I was on 175 mcg of Synthroid, and recently reduced to 150 mcg and the last tsh was .008

What would be the symptoms expected at this level?  Because I am restless, anxious and exhausted mentally and physically.  I haven't lost any of the weight I have gained in the past year and I constantly feel wired.

Please Help!

I would say that you are now experiencing hyperthyroidism...which can make you feel like you can't stop and you have lots of energy. It's usually totally opposite of hypothyroidism. You get sensitive to heat rather than cold, etc.

That's about right, I guess.  My biggest concern, with the Hashimoto's is, if the levels will ever be level!
I wish there was a decent doctor in Florida.  I've been around the track a time or two, with this.  
Thanks for the response.

I'm in Florida too. Trying an endo at Shands UF in Gainesville in March. They say she is awesome. My PCP thinks I have Hashimoto's as well. My TSH was 0.0 for awhile and now is 4.1  Thyroglobulin Antibodies 254 should be under 20.....Will post on how it goes with this doctor...

Good luck at Shands.  I was there 3 years ago, with questions about TPO's levels that were at 490! and I had just been detected with nodules.  They did the Hashi diagnosis, but cut me adrift, as it were, with everything else.  I have been questing for answers ever since.
It sounds like there is someone new there at Shands, and if she is reputed to be excellent, this is surely great news!
Please let me know how you make out!  I have read other testimonies, and while its nice to know I am not alone, it saddens me that others are suffering.
I would not wish this on my worst enemy.  Its so draining, to feel so bad all the time.  Best of luck to you!
