Hyper or hypo??

From: Memory - 3 years 26 weeks ago

I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism over 6 years ago. I lost so much weight. Over the past year I gained about 40 pounds. I'm so tired all the time I get irregular heart beat. Over the years I've been having a hard time taking my tapazole. Missing doses. Taking them at different times. Recently I've been having heart palps with bad anxiety. Went to the hospital my tsh level was at 5.8. Now my doctor has me taking half a 5 mg of tapazole in the morning and another half at night. Could it be possible I've got an under active thyroid when my doc says it's over active ? Also does tapazole work for under active ? I'm really confused my endo appointment is not until mid august any advice?? Please help
