TSH is a pituitary hormone, and it can be influenced by any number of factors besides thyroid hormone levels.  TSH of 100 usually indicates that you are hypo.  Don't be terribly alarmed by the high number.  Mine was 60-something when i was diagnosed, and we see people in the hundreds fairly frequently.  Which is not to say you don't need treatment.

Unfortunately, your doctor has ordered total T3 and total T4, which are considered of limited us.  FREE T3 and FREE T4 give much more information.  Your TT3 and TT4 are both in range.

How do you feel?  Do you have many hypo symptoms?
