Yes it is possible to be hypothyroid and have normal blood tests. However your TSH is high and not normal. Free T3 should be in the high normal range and free T4 should be in the lower half of normal. Total T3 and T4 are not good markers.
You should also get a full iron panel as well as being tested for Hashimoto's antibodies and for reverse T3 plus a saliva test for cortisol.
