See Yur Endocrinolog: You should visit your endocrinologist to fine tune your thyroid hormone medication(synthroid). Excess of this medication could be one cause. He/she can also check your CBC and make sure that your blood counts/hb is normal and you are not anemic. Regular follow ups with your endocrinologist is essential to keep you well.
