110/60 BP with hypothyroidism ....Still dizzy still muscle cramping, still memory fog , vitamin d supliments with  75 mg levothyroxin. What should ido?

Many other possible problems- magnesium deficiency, food allergies, lyme disease/chronic infections, mold toxicity, adrenal fatigue, mercury toxicity etc. I advise seeing a good holistic md to sort this out- see http://www.Abihm.Org/search-doctors. ...Read more
