What can this be?

Hi Doc,

I am fatigued most days. I have an underactive thyroid for which I am taking 100mg Eltroxin daily. I had this tested in May.

I swim 8kms every week, work a full day and do night shift with the kids.

My eyes are blurry and dry. I am 1.8m tall, weigh 60kgs and am 40 years old.

Can my symptoms just be from lack of sleep or can they be for a illness?

It is possible that your symptoms are due to a lack of sleep. Please however, note that all your symptoms can be due to your underactive thyroid and I suggest that you consult an endocrinologist to determine if your treatment is optimal.
