Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you. I am a board certified consultant with over 30 years of experience.
I understand your concern.

In my opinion you should consult your doctor and they may want to adjust/increase the dosage of your synthroid since your TSH level are already high and suggest hypothyroidism.Your feeling tired may be a sign of hypothyroidism.

Blood pressure is normal.
