Hypothyroid with normal blood work?

My T4, TSH, thyroid antibody tests are all within normal range.  I have most of the symptoms of hypothyroid condition (pretibial edema, hair loss, fatigue, difficulty losing weight, hoarseness).  My cortisol is normal but my DHEA is too low to measure.  I have been taking a supplement of DHEA for about six months.  Level is normal for my age (66).  My thyroid appears to be normal by palpation.  At age 3 I was treated with radiation for remaining tonsillar tissue after tonsillectomy.  I was given an accidental overdose and was told that it caused severe pain.  Is it possible to have thyroid disease given all the normal blood work?
