Hello,
Thank you for your query at DoctorSpring.com
I will need some details.
As you have undergone thyroid removal, you must be on Thyroxine replacement.
What dose are you on?

Patient replied :

I AM ON 125mg


The dose of Thyroxine needs to be reduced. Its been 7 yrs, if theres been no recurrence, then chances are very low now. So the TSH need not be targetted to be so low. Excess dosing can be the cause of your symptoms.
