Question: Dr. XXXXXXX

Is it possible to have every symptom of an under active thyroid and the test always be normal? Thinning hair, weight gain at a fast pace, not consuming enough food to explain the weight gain, extremely excessive dry skin and terrible insomnia.

I can't believe that this is possible and still have a normal blood test.

Thank you.
