Unexpected sharp rise in TSH

I have had hypothyroidism for many years and have always had my TSH checked. In August 2011 my TSH was .29, and my synthroid was decreased from 100mcg to 88 mcg. In Feb. 2012 my TSH was 2.24. In July I experienced a sudden serious depression and was hospitalized. My TSH was found to be 22.

I am quite sure that I took my thyroid, as I always take it along with my anti-depressant and omeprazole.

The endocrinologist found no goiter.

Any ideas about what could have caused such a sharp rise in the TSH?
