I need advice on what to do

Hello all!
I need advice on how to proceed with my HMO and the associated PCP and Endo, which have all but ignored my pleas for help. From what I read on these boards, this a common situation.

Here are my labs:
TSH 3.22 (range is .445-4.5 uIU/mL)

FT4 1.05 (range is .82-1.77ng/dL)
FT3 3.2 (range is 2.0-4.4 pg/mL)
RT3 24.8 (range is 9.2-24.1 ng/dL)

AntiAb < 20 (range is 0-40)
TPO Ab 359 (range is 0-34 IU/mL)

LDL 116 (range is 0-99)
HDL 37 (range is >39)
Triglycerides 125 (range is 0-149mg/dL)

Body temperatures hovers around 96.8.

Symptoms similar to all hypo-types: intolerance to cold, depression, brain fog, constipation, extreme fatige. And stranger symptoms lately: chest pain, sore throat, dizziness, GI issues that didn't exist before.

I am willing to go outside of network to see another endo (since my HMO's endo didn't even look at results other than TSH), but I'm worried about getting the same result (never mind finding another endo in my city).
