I have some issues with mood(anxiety and OCD) and heart(unstable blood pressure and occasionally atrial fibrilation), i had many testing behind, but nothing found, only lower potasium and higher cortisol.
I have low body temperature 35.5 Celsius, do you think it can be low thyroid, blood testing was ok.
Thanks

Some physicians diagnose subclinical hypothyroidism when morning body temperature is low but blood tests are normal.  Physicians sometimes test a low dose of thyroid hormone(s) to see if it relieves the patient's symptoms.

I have hypothyroidism but blood work fell within "normal ranges". 

What thyroid blood tests did you do, and what were the results (with ranges)?

Generally, many recommend Free T3 in the top 50% or even highest quadrant of the range, and Free T4 in the top half, too.
