Brief Answer:
Get her urine examination done.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Thanks for trusting hcm about your health care.
I have gone through your history and understand your concerns.
This symptom could be due to hormonal imbalance or it could be due to urine infection.
First of all she should get her urine routine and microscopic examination test done to rule out the cause of her symptom.
Get her repeat TSH level also if it was not done in last 3 months.
Hope found useful, feel free to ask more information.
Good luck.

Brief Answer:
Urinary tract infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Thanks for the information, I have gone through the reports and it showed urinary tract infection.
For that she should drink a lot of water.
She should get her urine culture and sensitivity and take antibiotics according to the report.
She should get her lower abdomen ultrasound to see kidney condition.
Her TSH is on lower side,if she is on medicines for hypothyroidism, she should reduce the dose.
Hope found useful, feel free to ask more information.
Good luck.
