Hypothyroidism

Hi,

I am 25 years old male and am hypothyroid since 2004 and have been put on varied doses of eltroxin (25mcg - 200mcg). Clinically, my TSH levels are 'within normal limits' since the last 4 months but I feel no different whether the TSH value is 30 or .30!
My symptoms are -
Fatigue, muscle cramps (even on getting up from sleep), constipation, foggy and confused mind most of the times (gets slightly better in the evenings), get tired quickly from little physical work.
The doctors just focus on what TSH levels are and vary my Eltroxin dosage accordingly without paying much heed to other constant symptoms. Currently I am on 150mcg of Eltroxin.

Please help!

Hi Kadwa,

I just wanted to get back to you with the results.

On the first couple of days after taking the medicine, the energy levels got a little better (rest of the symptoms stayed) but after that they're the same as mentioned in the form details above. Please advise.
