ALL tests find but still feeling bad

Hi everyone :)
I have had a TT for paillary Thyroid cancer and had my RAI and am now on 85 mcg of thyroxine daily. At one stage I was diagnosed iatrogenic hyperthyroidism with all my symptoms. At the moment my labs are fine and ALMOST all my symptoms have subsided. I still feel always dizzy, nauses, lightheaded, faint and find it hard to concerrntrate. I am not allowed to be on beta blockers as I have low blood pressure. Any suggestions of what tests/meds I should try???? Ps I am in Australia so it may vary but I am struggling with my Endo and GP.

Would focus on trying to make sure you are on the proper amount of thyroxine for your hypothyroidism with regard to the risk of recurrence of thyroid cancer which based on your description is probably low.  It appears that the dose decrease was appropriate and has been done.  It may take more time for your symptoms to catch up with the "normal" labs.
