hypothyroid/Adrenal issues?

Good afternoon-

I have been struggling since last October with my weight. I am an avid gym rat (6 days a week) and perform cardio 6 days a week. I have gain and lost the same 5 pounds for months. During this time, I have experienced neuropathy, hair loss, the sweats, inability to lose weight, headaches, and other symptoms with the major one---Chronic Fatigue. I have been to the Rheumy (as I was ANA positive round and speckled), a Neurologist, and yesterday, finally to the Endocrinologist. Previous Doctor's have just tested TSH or TSH reflex T4. Today the Endocrinologist performed a TSH, free T4 and free T3. I am awaiting the two thyroid antibody/immunoglobin tests.


TSH 1.29 REF: .27-4.20 (This is declining from previous tests. Beginning Sept. it was 1.42)
Free T4 1.13 REF: .78-2.19
Free T3 1.86 L Ref: 2.0- 4.4
A.M. Cortisol 26 H Ref: 6.20-19.4

Is this hypothyroidism? I did little research on the internet they only thing I am coming across is low t3 syndrome. I guess I am thrown off as the interpretation charts don't show a normal TSH, Free T4 and Low Free T3. Also, it appears the high cortisol causes T3 suppression?

Thanks for your thoughts, input?
