HI
Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, thyroid hormone goes on fluctuating greatly and this is nothing to worry unless does not have any clinical symptoms, other symptoms of fatigue, cold, constipation may be nonspecific, or it could be due to malignancy, hope this information helps, take care and have a nice day.
I find this answer helpful
