Hi there. First at all, sorry for my bad language. I will try to be understandable as I can.

Im 25years, male. I have a problem and many symptoms that brings to thyroid disorders - hypothyroidism... I v been on diet and diet for few years... and i v been on the border of serious anorexia. So I solve this problem myself. Im 166cm and have 48kg (almost anorexia)... So, this was about 2 years ago. Im 62kg at the moment. so... got weight gain. I had ortorexia too! I have all these symptoms: fatigue, lack of energy, mood swings, fluid retention, weight gain, cold intolerance, very cold feet, decreased memory - concentration, depression, low motivation-ambition, very brittle nails and slow growth, thiny hair, very slow healing, very low sex drive - libido, erectile dysfuntciton, muscle weakness, and the last thing, most important - vision problems. I think that vision disturbance is getting worse from year to year! So... I have been to my doctor, and he take TSH tests. In a few days, he says that im fine with TSH. (2.3). But I knew there is something wrong with me, and that I did not fell the way i felt about 5 years ago. So i decided to go to another doctor, but not my primary, couse he wanted to give me some antidepresant. Im from Slovenia actually, and I decided to go to Ljubljana to hospital poly-clinic to take a whole Thyroid tests... and... here's my thyroid results:

TSH: 0.043 mE/L (0.35-5.5)
FT4: 5.6 pmol/L (11.5-22.7)
FT3: 2.74 pmol/L (3.5-6.5)
antiTg: 13.4 KE/L (do 60)
antiTPO: 39.4 KE/L (do 60)

There is written down on a paper that I have Secondary Hypothyroidism, and I ll be called to a hospital for hospitalization, to check and test for primary cause because my thyroid insuficiency. I heard from one of the doctors that may by Pituitary gland problem. I have just read on the internet about Pituarity gland, hypopituitarism and about tumors.
Im going to hospitalization in about 14 days. And till the date i was wondering what is really happening to me? How posibility is there that i have a pituitary tumor. I have never had any headache, but my vision and sex libido... is 'suspicious'. ..Can somebody tell me some experience about it, and what you think?
I will be greatful for any of your answer, help and support.
Thanks again! and I hope I will be live a normal healthy life soon.
