Did my other suggestion not work?
It's true that the documentation of amsthm isn't very clear. Here's
an example of making your own theorem style:
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amsthm}
\newtheoremstyle{mytheorem}%
{3pt}% ⟨Space above⟩
{3pt}% ⟨Space below⟩
{\itshape}% ⟨Body font⟩
{\parindent}% ⟨Indent amount⟩
{\bfseries}% ⟨Theorem head font⟩
{.}% ⟨Punctuation after theorem head⟩
{.5em}% ⟨Space after theorem head⟩
{Theorem \thetheorem\quad\normalfont(\thmnote{#3})}% ⟨Theorem head
spec (can be left empty, meaning ‘normal’)⟩
\theoremstyle{mytheorem}
\newtheorem{theorem}{Theorem}
\begin{document}
\section{A section}
\begin{theorem}[Some text]
\[ \pi
\]
\end{theorem}
\end{document}
