From Hypothyroidism to Hyperthyroidism???

From: Sleeping Lady - 3 years 23 weeks ago

I am 51 years old. I have had Hashimoto's and Hypothyroidism for at least 12 years. I have been on Levothyroxine for 12 years. I started taking Armour along with the Levothyroxine a couple years ago. My thyroid has dissolved. I am also in perimenopause. My question is this, can a person with Hashimoto's & Hypothyroidism also develop Hyperthyroidism and Graves disease once the TSH levels have dropped? My last labs showed my TSH is down to .004. My blood pressure and blood glucose has jumped. My hair is still falling out, fatigue, dry itchy skin, etc....
I don't know if I should lower my dose or what. Any suggestions?
