In brief: Possibly
Tsh of 6 by itself is not indicative of hypothyroid need full evall to determine the cause of the symptoms.
Monitor the free T4 and T3 (liothyronine) an then with the complete picture a proper diagnoosis can be made but it sounds like your symptoms would be brought on by something other than thyroid disease.
