Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.
I understand from what you have stated that you have many symptoms of hypothyroidism. Manytimes, hypothyroidism may be there inspite of the normal thyroid levels. You are right in suggesting that if there is a suspicion, a doctor should give it a try and prescribe low dosage of thyroid. Infact even in depression which is resistant to medications,we do try adding thyroid supplementation and the patient does show significant improvement.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
