In brief: U need thorough exam

It depends on your symptoms you have pegged for "hypothyroidism.
" fatigue, weight gain, etc can be due to many other medical problems besides hypothyroidism. At this point, you need to be evaluated and treated for the hyperthyroidism and further work continued for your other symptoms.
