Hi dear,
Thanks for writing in. Your symptoms are not related to hypothyroidism in any way. I hope your latest TSH report was within normal range. The exact cause for yhese symptoms needs to be determined by physical examination and investigations. So you see a good physician. Take multi vitamins, calcium, Vit B12 and vitamin D supplementation. Check your hemoglobin level too and take hematinics if its level is low.
Hope this helps.
