Clinical findings may include tremor, tachycardia, lid lag, and warm moist skin then start carbimazole along with propranolol Otherwise carbimazole enough

Most likely a case thyrotoxicosis due to Hoshimoto's thyroiditis. Brittle thyroid function . Can easily change from hyperthyroidism to hypothyroidism with anti thyroid drugs. Will eventually become hypothyroid requiring life long thyroid replacement. If clinically there are thyrotoxic signs and symptoms, suggest observation and 3rd monthly thyroid profile with FREET3 and T4
