These all are related to the effects of hypothyroidism.
You should have a Thyroid Function Tests and Thyroid scan for any nodule.
If the T3 and T4 levels are below limits increase the dose of levothyroxine with TFTs repeat every month.

Hypothyroidism can have all these factors donot worry you will be fine.

I hope I am successful in solving your query If you have more you can ask me.
Take care
