I understand your problem and appreciate your concern towards the regular medications.
How ever let me add that being a hypertensive,hypothyroid patient with regular medications,it is a must to get our thyroid profile normal.For the fluctuating tsh ranges signify that body need extra thyroxin,so in turn we can tapper the dose with proper consultation.more over let me assure that the eltroxin might not be the major concern for the stiffness and weakness,please get your Vit D3and serum calcium checked as well.
hope this helps
most welcome for further queries.
