I realize this answer is very, very late ... but may help someone in future.

If you have hypothyroidism and you stop taking levothyroxine it can upset the levels of other hormones as well. and you feel of course have symptoms related to hypothyroidism and perhaps other unrelated symptoms too.

Please see the link below for more information about hypothyroidism.
