Microscopic colitis and thyroid?

I have been diagnosed with Microscopic Colitis.  Particularly Lymphocytic colitis with some collagenous colitis.  None of the medications are working, Entocort, Cholestyramine, Neomycin, Prednisone.  I am so tired, cold hands, feet, low temperature.  I was wondering if I may have a throid problem.  I have been tested in the past but it just shows normal or low normal.  I am so thin that the doctors just don't think that could be it but I wonder?

Some of the symptoms go along with it, but am no dr.  Check out the normal thyroid ranges of TSH (.3 - 3.0), Free T4, Free T3, etc. Sorry, but TSH is the only one I remember right now.  Find them on the web post 2003 to make sure they are the most current standards.  Then get the levels from your dr. and make sure they are in the norm.  If they are not, or you don't agree, get a second opinion.
