Hi all, just went to a new endocrinologist and got back my thyroid function results.
So this is my history, at all the way below is my results from yesterday's thyroid function test.
Initial presentation: (Date:29/4/15)
FT4 45.5pmol/L (12.0-22.0)
TSH <0.005 mIU/L (0.270-4.20)
Thyroid Receptor Antibody (TRabs) <0.3 IU/L NEGATIVE <1.8
Thyroid Stiumlating Immunoglobulin (TSI) <1 % NEGATIVE
Thyroid Peroxidase Ab L <5 IU/mL (5-34) NEGATIVE
Thyroglobulin Ab H 217 IU/mL (10-115) POSITIVE*
Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate: 4 mm/hr (1-10)
Thyroid Function Test: (27/5/15)
FT4 HH 29.8 pmol/L (12.0-22.0)
TSH LL 0.006 mIU/L (0.270-4.20)
Ultrasound of Thyroid:

Right lobe of thyroid measures: 6 x 2 x 1.8 cm
Left lobe of thyroid measures: 5.9 x 1.8 x 1.6cm
Isthmus measures 0.5 cm
Normal echotexture without nodules or calcification.
Diffuse, mildly increased vascularity of thyroid gland noted.
Cervical lymph nodes appear normal.
Diffuse thyroiditis without focal mass.
Thyroid Function Test:
TSH : 2.28 uIU/mL (0.35-4.94)

It seems like my thyroid has gone back to normal.Yay!
But the doctor still wants me to eat one pill everyday in case, it goes back to before. I have read many stories where people become euthyroid
, still feels awful and one day they suddenly become hypo or hyper.
The only thing that worries me is the anti-thyroglobulin (Tgab) its double the expected range. Could it have gone down by now? and why does it say my thyroid has diffuse thyroiditis without focal mass?
My doc says stress causes the hyperthyroid and its true i have lots of stress before, but now its better thats why my thyroid become normal? She says in the future if i go back to being stressful, it may come back again.
Can someone tell me whether im in the safe zone or its like a wait and see thing. I can still feel my heart pound especially when I'm sleeping.
Thanks and much appreciated, sorry for the long story!
