Is this a sign of a pituitary disorder..?

Okay, hello everyone.. I've never done this before but I need help, and I am SO confused and sick of doctors sucking and I'm hoping someone can maybe give me a general direction of where to even start (other than not to a crappy doctor..)
I got my bloodwork results back and they are as follows..
TSH- 8.92
T4- 6.8
T3- 115

I am under the impression that my TSH is crazy high, and so is my T4, which is rare.. so rare I can't find any reason that would even be possible.. does anyone know why this would happen, and what it means?

I also have been to my GYN because of irregular (about every 13 days) HEAVY menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, pain during sex, rapid weight gain for no reason, headaches, mood wings, MAJOR fatigue.. and she wants to do laparascopic surgery to see if it's endometriosis, which does run in my family... I am feeling super unlucky, and obviously lost. Any input would help

Re: Is this a sign of a pituitary disorder..?

You quite possibly could have a pituitary gland disorder, one that came up with a little researching was an adenoma although an adenoma is benign you should really follow up again and stress about your test results, hope that helps :/

Re: Is this a sign of a pituitary disorder..?

what you described can be a sign of a pituitary disorder (which isnt rare) one thing that comes to mind is an adenoma (which is very treatable) you should schedule a follow up with an endocrinologist (yes you should see a "crappy doctor") because your tests indicate an abnormality.
