I'm 25, female, with testosterone 12ng/dl. Is this causing my diffuse hair loss, heart palpitations and irritability?

Are my hormones the cause?
With normal menstrual cycles, hormones are rarely the main cause of hair loss in young women. They may contribute when elevated, but in young women with normal testosterone total levels and regular periods, it's unlikely the testosterone has much to do with the whole picture of hair loss.
Be sure to see a dermatologist to review your scalp and blood tests and go through your entire story from A to Z.
