Thanks for your question.

Yes, the thyroid hormone level can fluctuate within normal range.

This is due to the timing of the blood draw & also stress associated with those times.

Your symptoms may be related to your anemia.

Another strong possibility is underlying depression.

Please treat your depression.

Drink plenty of fluids & dietary fibers ( miralax, fibogel, citrucel etc.)daily to normalize your bowel movement.

But I feel good emotionally, except for feeling tired. I was never before so tired as now,I used to train 6 times a week, now half an hour feels like as if I went to a boot camp. And I don't understand why i have light anemia if my ferritin leves are normal and I have taken vitamin B complex. I eat healthy , a lot of vegetables, fish/chicken, fruits as less of possble fried food.

Then get yourself checked out for autoimmune diseases like connective tissue disorders, lupus etc.
