From this study (1 month ago):
My levels of TSH have fluctuated from optimal .94 to 8.00 after thyroidectomy from Graves Disease in 2012. Have become disinterested in things I used to love to do and have a hard time staying awake at work in the afternoons. I have taken the synthroid religiously as I am supposed to. I also take an iron supplement, B-complex in hopes that it would help my energy level. I also take valium to sleep at night and narco for pain.
From this study (1 month ago):
not much pain but weak and lethargic from lack of nutrition
From this study (3 months ago):
