Problems after RAI

Hi all
Anyone out there having difficulty a month after RAI? I had the RAI treatment on Feb 7th.

I had surgery in October (TT) for papillary thryoid cancer, went on Eltroxin and basically felt pretty good. In January I had to go hypo and do the diet for 5 weeks before RAI and even though I was sluggish I didn't feel that bad. I kept working and moving forward.
I really thought that I had been through the worst and things would get better.

RAI was not great but since I have gone back on my meds I feel depressed, have anxiety attacks, I am tired all the time but can't sleep and generally feel awful. My doctor says my blood tests show I am still a bit hypo but not to worry and things will get better. I am taking 150mg.

I feel like something is very wrong here but I am doing everything I am supposed to do, I work full time, take care of my family, go to doctor when needed etc... - it just gets harder and harder to get through each day.

Any advice??
