Free T4: Before you do anything else please see your doctor and explain that you do not think you are taking enough thyroid medication! Your doctor will get lab results very quickly and will make changes if needed.
That said, it is possible that your symptoms are not related to your thyroid issues.
Hope all goes well - please keep me informed.
