This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
your symptoms sound more like HYPERthyroid ecept for the low blood pressure/fainting feeling.

25 mg is an extremely small dose. Maybe the smallest you can be on.

1) are you eating enough salt...could just be low blood pressure?

2) family history of thyroid problems?

3) menses--normal...give details of this.

4) height. wt., age would be helpful.

5) with cool chill accompanied by fidgety and nervousness on inside with kinda foggy--history of panic attacks??
