Re: High TSH, normal (low-end) free T4
Your symptoms indicate hypothyroidism and your labs confirm it.
TSH > 2 is a sign that thyroid hormone levels are too low for the body's needs.
Your FreeT4 thyroid hormone levels is definitely lower than a healthy person would have. Healthy people have FreeT4 levels towards the high end of the range.
You are very, very fortunate that your GP wants to start you on treatment - many doctors miss what is obvious to us.
I wouldn't necessarily be in a rush to see an endo - many of them are horrible at treating thyroid disease.
Starting on thyroxine will get you on the path to wellness. It will take some time for your meds dose to be titrated to a point that will eliminate symptoms but, it will happen if your dose is appropriate.
