Welcome to HCM.
Lithium is known to cause hypothyroidism & hypothyroidism can cause all the symptoms experienced by you. You can just do your thyroid function tests & get treated if any abnormality is found. Mostly, if hypothyroidism is there, thyroid replacement will relieve your symptoms.
Wish you good health.
