Brief Answer:
need to consider anxiety and depression.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using HealthcareMagic.

I have read your question and understand your concerns.

The values of the tests you provided don't justify these symptoms.

Since you had a clear brain MRI, conditions such encephalopathy that may be related to Hashimoto's, or any other metabolic disorder, are excluded.

In my opinion, the main condition you need to deal with is anxiety and depression.

I think this condition is draining your energy and is causing such issues.

Please get help and follow up with a Psychologist or Psychiatrist in order to evaluate further.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Kind regards.
