A low TSH would mean hyper thyroid.

Do you know the exact values.

It sounds like this is temporary weight gain.

Is your TSH in the low normal range?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
