thyroid issues unanswered

10/31/12 results:
                                  Range
T3 uptake   31. 6      20.0-38.5
T4                8.2       4.4-12.4
Calc T7        2.59      1.05-4.50
TSH             0.4        0.5-4.7

On 11/28 TSH was run again and it went down to 0.2. No other tests were run. The problem is I have all the symptoms of having hypothyroidism and have never been diagnosed because my results have only been borderline.  I was referred to endocrinologist by PCP. I went and had ultrasound done last month. Results showed goiter with multiple nodules. Only 1 greater than 1cm.  Endo seems to think hyperthyroidism but I told her I do not have those symptoms.  I am extremely tired daily. Always looking for a drink or pill to give me energy. Weight issues. Always cold to the point where it annoys everyone around me. If I sit down on the couch I fall asleep.  
Endo didn't want to do anything right now.  Wanted to run tests again in 1 month and if results still the same then wants to run scan.  Why am I having contradicting results vs symptoms?  And what do the other results mean T3, T4 and T7?

Do you have Free T3 and Free T4 in your test results? These are the most important, and also any antibody tests done, TSI, TPOab or Tgab? If so please post these results including reference ranges provided, as Ranges vary from lab to lab  Thank You FTB4

No other tests done. Should I insist on having these done next appointment?
