They say my levels are normal, but I'm so tired....

Hi there,
I am first-time poster and hoping for some advice...

I had my thyroid removed April 25th, and RAI (despite the nodule being only .5cm it showed spreading to my lymph already!!!)on June 1st.
I was started on Synthroid 125 - but I was so exhausted just vacuuming one room made me feel like I ran a marathon. Going up to 137 made my levels "normal" but my T3 hasn't been tested. (TSH - .07; T4- 1.71 as of July 9th).

I have read that maybe T3 - cytomel will help, or that there could be an adrenal issue - I'd just like to be able to wake up in the mornings without every once of willpower i have ..... its making me feel very unmotivated and depressed.... (symptoms of hypo, i believe...)

Thoughts and advice? I'd like to get back to normal asap - not just to feel humna again, but because we had just started trying to conceive when this all started - I don't want to miss another whole year trying to fix this.....

Thanks so much for your advice!!!!
