I am tired, have lower backache, ache in right arm all the way to my fingers, aching in hips, and knees some. I am itchy on my upper torso off an on, have brain fog, anxiety, slight fatigued.
I am on zoloft and vitamins, and that's it.

Hello

It is not likely that your thyroid is normal.

Labs and doctors [most ] say up to 4.5 on TSH is normal.

Not true. 2.5 or higher can be hypothyroid.

Get an up to date endocrinologist.

Zoloft can cause these symptoms as well.

I am just so worried that I have lymphoma or something and my blood tests aren't reflecting that. I have been to two endocrinologists because I heard that before, but something is definitely still wrong.

No

NO indication of lymphoma.

Check your exact TSH.
