Unhappy ? Lab results fluctuation WHY???

1st test was done when i was feeling pretty bad but not at my lowest point.
Ultra TSH .28 (0.34-5.6),
T4 8.3 (6.1-12.2),
T7 3.4 (1.1 - 4.4),
T3 UPTAKE 40.7 (32.0-48.4)
total T3 617 (60-181)
antithroglobulin antibodies NDL,
thyroid peroxidase antibodies NDL
Iron and CBC normal limits
2nd test done when i was feeling great! a few months later.
TSH .41 (0.34 -5.6)
FT3 5.8 (2.4- 6.8)
FT4 .8 (.6 - 1.6)
2nd test done by edocrinologists orders *He had also notated my 1st results where within normal limits except for TSH*. Could some one please help me figure this out as I feel some of the same symptoms i had when i was feeling bad coming back again. I don't get it.

The tests in both cases are different tests, so you're asking for a comparison of apples and oranges.

So i understand which test are in normal range....but what about Total T3 boing so high? and is there a difference between ultra TSH and TSH? I could not get endo to explain that to me and what do they go by to try and get my system back to normal? Or do I need to be looking elsewhere other than endo.
