Hashimoto's: Hashimoto's disease often leads to hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid). Check out http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/hashimotos-disease/basics/definition/con-20030293 & http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/hypothyroidism/basics/definition/con-20021179. Unfortunately, symptoms can be vague & nonspecific. Worse, there's wide range of normal. Ask for higher dose then recheck TSH.
