Hi Sony1,

Did you ask for a copy of your lab results? Sometimes your thyroid levels can be normal but they are on the high end of normal--leaving you equally fatigued because they are barely normal. 

It is also possible that you may need to start exercising or simply going out for a walk as tolerated and as instructed by your doctor. If your levels are at the barely normal range then you can consider asking your doctor for a higher dosage of synthroid.

Best of luck,
