Suggest remedy for underactive thyroid

I feel constantly tired, ache, depressed. Have an underactive thyroid, but on 125 mg Levothyroxine and blood tests for that all normal. I have one day where I feel alive, energetic, then it gets replaced by total lethargy, tearfulness and struggle to do anything. My sex drive has become non existent too. I am 40 years old, weigh 9 st 5 ( but weight keeps piling on despite exercise and sensible diet) and I cannot stand to feel like this.

HI
Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern and looking to the history given here I could say that your are already on the medicine for thyroid dysfunction and apart from this your other symptoms are highly related with the anxiety and depression and it would be better for you to just keep the stress level low, take care and have a nice day.
I find this answer helpful
