Dear User.

TSH of 6 qualifies under subclinical hypothyroidism, which doesnt usually requires treatment,
We do treat them if there level rises to > 10 or they become symptomatic.

I advise you to get complete thyroid profile.

And I personally don't think that TSH of 6 will cause so many symptoms.

Its better to get proper evaluation to find outother reason for your problems.

Review with us with complete medical history and investigation s you have.

We will be glad to help you
