Need Help Newly Diagnosed

First let me start out by saying that this all confuses me. I was diagnosed as hypo in May. I also have Hashimotos. My endo has been steadily increasing me since May. At first dose, I felt great and continued to do so through all three synthroid adjustments. I am on 75 mcg now. I have been starting to get some symptoms back now so my endo ordered more lab work. It came back as follows:

TSH .9
T3 2.9
T4 1.0

Is it possible for me to be having symptoms with these levels. I have been reading these boards and people say that you need to treat the symptoms and not the levels. Can anyone help? I am having the coldness, bloating, achy body, nodding off and lethargic and dry hair and hair falling out.

Please help. I demanded an appt with my endo and will be going in four days.

Thanks so much!! As I said, I'm trying to learn about this confusing disease but I know how I feel and I don't like living like this again. Especially since I knew what it was like to feel better.

Re: Need Help Newly Diagnosed

Can you please post reference ranges for those labs. And your previous labs to compare. My guess is that your Free T's could be higher and you could try a small med increase.
