The reference ranges that the lab you ran your test is way off  Where did they get 6.0?? - the updated AACE range that everyone should be on is .3 - 3.0.  In the post that level maxium was 5.5. tops!!

You are hypothyroid. Even at the references ranges you have and your blood test proves you at least at a  "sub clinical" state and would require thyroid meds. Are you on any?

I think I would call the doctor and tell them you did some checking and you feel you ARE hypothyroid - if there do nothing - seek other care.

Your symptoms are classic for your condition.
