Initial TSH 12.2, took Levothyroxine for 40 days, latest TSH 0.02, tired and mentally foggy. Isn't it very low ?

My initial TSH was 12.2. I have been taking Levothyroxine 0.125MG daily for about 40 days. Lasest blood test shows TSH at 0.02. Dr. Offoce asst. left me a voice mail saying this number is fine and stay on the prescribed dose. . . Until next years physical. Does this not seem too low. I am extremely tired and mentally foggy.

Though TSH levels seem to low, you are on lowest dose of levothyroxine which can't be reduced further. Also symptomatic improvement will become apparent after 6-12 weeks. So just continue medicines & relax. Maybe you can repeat TSH after 3 months if needed.
Wish you good health.
