Hello I'm Dr Chip

What's making you not feel well?

Any symptoms besides the laryngitis and by that you mean you're hoarse?

I've been severely fatigued in the last few weeks!
No other, yes I have completely lost my voice just over night
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
My temp is running 95.7, always cold

OK

The laryngitis by itself isn't anything worrisome--usually just a viral problem that soon resolves

But with your low temperature and the continuing fatigue you may not be on a sufficient dosage of the synthroid and cytomel and you need to have your TSH level checked

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
