    It is both an autoimmune and endocrine disorder. Which specialty doctor do you see? If you are still having symptoms it would indicate your medication isn't strong enough to alleviate symptoms. Talk to your specialist about the things you are experiencing. It may be just a simple thing of dosage adjustment.

    First answerer correct could just be dosage adjustment. But.....Are you on generic Levothyroxine or on Brand name Synthroid. My doc told me that LOTS of people don't respond to the Generic stuff. I'm in Brand name and it has been working great no other symptoms besides super difficulty in losing excess weight. Go back for another blood test and get on brand name Synthroid.
