Brief Answer:
Some more info is needed.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I am sorry for your bothersome symptoms.
First you should be sure that your synthroid dose is correct. An over dosage of it may cause the above mentioned symptoms.
Secondly an infection that causes a low grade fever should be excluded.
Please attach the result of the blood works you have done until now in order to try to suggest you further exams needed.
Kind regards,
Dr.Mirjeta
