Re: Please help with test results

Whenever you post test results, always post the lab's normal range along with them.
For example, the lab sheet may read something like this:
TSH 4.23 [0.6-5.5]
Free T4 - .9 [.8-1.8]

The numbers in brackets are that lab's normal 'range'. Each lab has it's own range that can differ substantially from others. Where your result falls within that range is the way we gather information from it.

But, from what I see even without the ranges, your TSH is high-normal, which means you have low thyroid function. Since you have a high-normal TSH, antibodies, and symptoms, it means you'll probably benefit from starting treatment now.
My best advice... Find a doctor who agrees ASAP, before you become worse for waiting.
