A TSH of 14.27 is definitely high...I am symptomatic over 4.0...and I get hyperthyrod symptoms when I'm hypothyroid...I get horribly exhausted, anxiety, migraines, tingling in my hands and feet and full/ringing in my ears...I am not the norm and seem to be my endo's most complicated case...I have graves disease (hyperthyroidism) and had my thyroid erradiated as I was allergic to tapazole... So now I have hypothyroidism as well... My TSH literally goes up and down to drastic numbers every 2 weeks and I feel it! They think my crohns has something to do with it...luckily I have an endo who listens to me when I'm not well and will adjust my meds...you need a doc who will do the same
