Hypopituitarism/Empty Sella

Hello-
I just started seeing a new endocrinologist who thinks i have Secondary Hypothyroidism/Hypopituitarism. He came to this conclusion based on my TSH and free Ts always being low normal, along with a MRI that showed that I have Empty Sella Syndrome. However, when I had the MRI done in the ER, they never mentioned the empty sella to me? I took that to mean it doesn't affect one's health?

Is my doctor right in thinking the Empty Sella nudges me into the Pituitary area versus primary hypothyroidism (this is what my 1st doctor diagnosed me as). I also was wondering what type of tests my doctor should order to rule out (or in) the chance of a pituitary problem. I've been struggling with many symptoms the last year that everyone I've seen agrees are "hormonally based" yet no seems to agree what kind of hormones. Thanks in advance.
