Inadequate thyroid hormones will cause  hypothyroid symptoms, with the severity being dependent on the relative levels of hormone.  If you are still having hypo symptoms, it is likely that you are taking inadequate amount of thyroid med, or the wrong type of med.  What thyroid med are you taking and what is the daily dosage?

Also, if you will please post your thyroid test results and their reference ranges shown on the lab report, members will be able to better assess your testing and treatment.
