Is your doctor monitoring your thyroid with labs regularly?
Do you have palpitations? Stay away from caffeine ie chocolate and soda etc. Talk to your doctor about these symptoms, it may be something in addition to thyroid. Do you have unusually high stress day to day? Do you smoke? If so please ask your doctor for ways to help you to quit. Could it be anxiety related. You need to write down your symptoms and schedule an apppointment with your physician to discuss what can be done to help. Good luck.
