Sensitivity To Cold Thyroid
I am experiencing symptoms of hair loss, cold sensitivity, fatigue. Tsh came back at 2.39. Is it still possible I am having thyroid issues?
Yes, it is possible: Tsh measures pituitary function. You need more extensive thyroid hormone testing- with free T3 and free t4. You could have a relatively normal TSH but if your thyroid hormone levels are low then there might be a thyroid condition.

Is it normal for someone w/ a tsh of 4.2 to have symptoms of brainfog,fatigue,body pain,cold sensitivity,tinnitus,vertigo,light sensitivity? (32 male)
That's never normal: If your TSH is a bit up, you may have mild hypothyroidism and your physician will address this. It is common for a person's body to express a mix of problems such as the ones you describe when life is difficult, and especially if one feels trapped in a situation.
