Low temp: Your symptoms may be seen with anemia, underactive thyroid, iron deficiency, adrenal gland deficiency,low blood pressure, abnormally slow heart rhythm. Your tsh is consistent with an underactive thyroid and more thyroid testing is needed for confirmation and to determine degree. Discuss with your physician.

Agree with Dr. C: Hypothyroidism could explain your clinical situation. It would be prudent to consult an endocrinologist.
