calcitonin and cea blood test

Well I went to the endo for the first time and I have mixed emotions. I was diagnosed with hashi's 2 years ago. While it seemed like he listened to me he also dismissed most of my symptoms and did not really believe I feel as bad as i do. Well to make a long story short, I have two nodules one on the right-3x3x3 and the other on the left 5x7x3. They are soft. My blood work is unremarkable except for the antibodies. With the extensive history of thyroid cancer in the family, he immediately sent me for a bone density exam and the calcitonin and cea blood work. What does this mean? What is the correlation? He also switched me from symthroid to levoxyl. From 50 mcg to 75 mcg. I really feel bad now. No energy at all and my gut is acting up something fierce. Is the switch that bad or am i just sensitive.
I just want to fee ok again. I have kind of given up feeling good.

Thanks for letting me vent.
