Hi and welcome to question doctors.com
Having a normal range lab results does not really indicate it is fine …the normal level is the level that makes you asymptomatic and since you started to develop symptoms recently… This means your dose is no more enough or your T4 drug treatment may need to be changed…you can be in normal range lab..but your level is not yet achieved ..so you need to discuss it with a good endocrinologist who can listen to you and understand your needs.and has the enough time to try doses until you feel fine again..note that if you change the dose it takes a month or two to start feeling the difference..
Avoid stress and try yoga and meditation until then…
hypothyroidism is usually associated with these symptoms. But hair loss should not be so severe if the thyroid levels are normal. Get a detailed thyroid assay done and try changing the tablet. Consult a endocrinologist. take health supplements,drink more of fruit juices. Take iodine rich food. rule out other associated scalp conditions from a dermatologist.
HAIR LOSS SEEMS TO BE BECAUSE OF OTHER HORMONAL CHANGES. BECAUSE YOUR THYROID TESTS ARE NORMAL. YOU SHOULD GET OTHER BLOOD TESTS DONE TO FIND OUT EXACT CAUSE. DE-STRESS YOURSELF,DO YOGA,MEDITATION. TAKE VITAMIN E TABLETS
these are after effects of initial hypothyroidism that you had. even though the thyroid hormones are within normal range now, it may take time to get the hair back. a trichologist will rule out any other possible causes of hair loss. u can use hair nourishing and growing oils/local creams over the scalp
