Graves' disease?

I posted my first post on here yesterday regarding symptoms of overactive thyroid but with "normal" tsh. I don't know the ranges but as soon as I get a printout, I will post on here.

Came across Graves' disease on here which is something I'd looked into few years ago. I have been experiencing odd symptoms for 6 years -I'm now 33 years of age,which the Doctors have said its anxiety,but although in some aspects I agree that yes,I do have anxiety-it did come out of the blue-and after weight loss(despite eating massively)and palpitations. Here is a list of symptoms:

Palpitations,weight/muscle loss, anxiety/nervous,balance issues,can get dizzy,difficulty swallowing,dry tired eyes,tired easily but can get hyperactive/on edge,tingly fingers and toes,headaches,fogginess feeling,stands of hair falling out,can feel cold but most recently hot flushes. Menstrual changes.shaky hands.

As said before,I have had blood tests over the years but all "okay".. I have had two sets done this year 8 months apart, all i know from that was the doctor said he was happy but my iron was low but still within range. Told me to eat iron rich foods. Had more tests done few weeks back and apparently normal,but I will question this as thanks to those who replied to my first post yesterday,it seems that I could still be hyper but with normal ranges as they may not have run the other tests(T3/T4?). Anyway, been looking at this Graves' disease and I'm having the exact symptom. Anyone had a diagnosis of graves but normal results?

Thanks

All thyroid tests should be done as early as possible in morning and fasting and don't take Levo in the 24 hours prior to test, delay and take straight after. This gives highest TSH and most consistent results
