What type of thyroid condition is this, and is it serious?

My mom has thyroid problems and shes 99.99% sure i do too. I would believe the one she thinks i have is Hypothyroidism, but were not sure at all. I’m going to go get a blood test for it soon. I am 14 and was diagnosed with depression; so obviously i feel depressed, I have hairloss, my weight has stayed consistent with me for about three or four years but ive only grown about four inches, I have a really fast metabolism.. I heard feeling worthless is a symptom as well, i have that. Im constantly dozing off. I have fatigue and frequent headaches. I can’t seem to remember things. I have low body temperature regularly while everyone else is hot and they touch me and are always like "Whoa youre so cold!" My body always aches.. and I am nervous a lot of the time.
*Other medical information that might be helpful, I have iron deficiency anemia (Which my mom also has) and scoliosis.My mood changes incredibly easily and my PMS is horrible, I also have abnormal menstrual cycles (9 days at a time normally) and really heavy. Also either spread really far apart or frequently.
Thank you!
im also hungry a lot and sweat a little bit more than normal. i have difficulty concentrating and am nauseaus a lot, and kind of restless.

    I hope you are going to see a specialist and not just the family doctor. Thyroid problems can go undiagnosed even w/ the blood test. I have that happen. I was well past my 20’s before a doctor correctly found out that I am hypothyroid. It ONLY showed up w/ a sonogram of the thyroid. The blood work was and always still is ‘normal’ though my system most definitely was NOT normal at that time.
    That said it sound like you may have more than one things going on. I had many of the symptoms you list but definitely NOT the fast metabolism. I had exactly the opposite…the slowest metabolism the specialist had ever seen.
    Some of it might be diet too.
    The ONLY way to know what is going on is to go to the doctor/specialist , have testing done, have the professionals figure out what is going on and the follow the directions they give you . Your mom can help with all of that. Since she has thyroid issues she will be very helpful to you.
    I’ll say a prayer for quick identification and resolution of your issues.
