Hello, I'm not really new here, for years, I've read many threads and I rarely make comments on here, but I can tell you that your best friend is the Levothyroxine, never stop taking them. I've been on them since 2009, and recently I was off them for nearly 2 months and it wrecked havoc on my body. The symptoms you are experiencing is normal, once the Levothyroxine really has a chance to get in your system the symptoms will go away, only your low iron symptoms will remain until you get treatments for that, but the thyroid issues will go away.
Just know this, never let any doctor talk you out of getting and taking Levothyroxine, you will have to take them for life, there is no known cure for thyroid issues as of now, and the only thing test results can tell your doctor is rather to keep you on the same dose, increase the dose, or decrease the dose, but never and I do mean NEVER take you off the Levothyroxine. You will need them for life even if your levels show consistent positive results, that is because you are on the right hormone producing dosage, not because the thyroid is better. A doctor recently did that to me and I'm still slowly recovering from that.
Nevertheless, thyroid issues can affect over 300 areas of the body, so your iron could get better with the Levothyroxine as well if it's a result of your thyroid condition.
Nice to meet you
