I am constantly tired and have no energy and have low lobeido my gut tells me that I am hypothyroid

From this study (1 day ago):
Numbness has occurred on and off for several years. Always in upper left back near shoulder blades. Left hand feels like it may go numb and so leg (this is very subtle though). Exercise, potentially heat and stress induce the numbness feeling. The bladder issues have also gone on several years and have probably led tobthe insomnia. Very anxious person but find peace with exercise. I also have high heart rate (99) and I exercise every day. Also consume caffeine.
