Help

I am a 33 year old male. Low energy has always been a problem for me. I've been tested for Mono and Anemia several times throughout my life, (Always negative.) My mom used to take me to the doctor at 4 years old because I was taking 4 hour naps everyday.
-I'm not overweight, but I'm not in superior shape either.
-About 2 years ago I started having dizzy spells where I feel like I'm going to pass out.
-My heart rate is very low, 37 beats per minute overnight. The cardiologist thinks I just have a strong heart. (The extreme "spells" have subsided, although minor ones still happen from time to time.)
-My waking body temp is 97.2.
My thyroid was tested 2 years ago.
TSH 1.06 (.35-4.5)
T4 .62 (.61-1.12) (shouldn't 1 be high if the other is low?)
Retested
TSH 1.47 (.35-4.5)
T4 .67 (.61-1.12)
Doc says my thyroid levels are fine.
1 month ago, I go to a different doctor. I tell him I still feel tired all the time.
He tests my thyroid:
TSH .963 (.35-4.5)
T4 1.1 (.7-1.8)
"Normal" he says.
He tests my Testosterone:
Total Test 359 (350-1080)
FSH 1.5 (1.4-18.1) (Shouldn't 1 be high when the other is low?)
Free T 12.5 (8.8-27)
"Normal" he says.

Other things that may be important:
I go to the bathroom 20 times per day (negative on diabetes.)
Bad acne at 33 years old.
Dizzy Spells
Brain Fog
Low Energy
Depression
I wet the bed till 6 years old.

Is it possible I have a pituitary thing? My doctor said that would be very rare.

Re: Help

It might be a pituitary thing. The pituitary controls salt & water balance. There is a pituitary disorder called diabetes insipidus which causes people to urinate very frequently. Pituitary tumors can cause adult acne, brain fog, low energy, & depression. There are usually some very classic symptoms of pituitary tumors depending on the type of tumor.
