Hi there!

Tiredness/ fatigue more often relates to a hypothyroid state than a hyperthyroid state. It might be a good idea to get the levels checked if additional T4 supplementation or dose adjustment would be required. I would suggest consulting your endocrinologist for the same.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
