Just being anywhere within the so-called "normal" ranges does not assure feeling okay for many thyroid patients.  The ranges are too broad and people are too different.  It would be helpful if you would post the actual results and reference ranges shown on the lab report, so that members can help interpret and advise.

I also went Hypo after too much Methimazole, which is very normal.  I definately think you can still be feeling the effects of Carbimazole. I feel, the side effects  from Methimazole can be just as intense as chemo side effects. It' a very strong drug.
I'm with gimel, if you can post your blood work, dates, and med dosages, we can compare. Please check out my journal on July 13, 2010. This is my blood work & meds to date. Hang in there !

? ? ?  
What is the ref. range for your TSH?  Because they are different everywhere.
What is your Free T3 & Free T4,  and the ref. ranges?
I don't understand what you mean when you're referring to Free Level 12.
