Hypothyroidism: The symptoms you have are more compatible with hypothyroid state. You are on the lowest dose yet and likely your doctor is adjusting it, just can't give a very high dose right away. It takes a few weeks to adjust each level so as not to get side effects. Talk to your doctor for reassurance.
