In brief: Pituitary tests

Central hypothyroidism is very rare, and typically occurs in association with other problems of the pituitary gland.
You should have testing of other pituitary function (prolactin, lh, fsh, igf-1, estradiol, cortisol). You may need to see an endocrinologist for a proper diagnosis.
