Needs Evaluation

Detailed Answer:

After going through the medical details provided by you, I understand your concern. I would like to tell you that, as you are already taking Unithroid; it's important to get your thyroid profile checked once to see if the levels are alright or the medicine needs to be adjusted.

Kindly get thyroid profile tests done for proper understanding of the underlying cause.
