Brief Answer:
Other reasons possible than thyroid disease

Detailed Answer:
Dear patient,

your symptoms might have other reasons if they persist after proper thyroid medication.

Common possibilities are:

1.) anaemia (iron, vitamin b12, or folic acid deficiency), to be checked through blood work.
2.) chronic infections, to be checked through blood work also

Also stress/ depression can be a cause to the symtoms described, if you have any stress and there is no somatic reason found, that possibility needs to be considered also.

Hope this is helping you , if you have any clarificatons you can get back to me, if this was helpful please kindly rate my answer. Best regards
