I had a thyroid test last week, my TSH came back at 944, while my T4 and T3 (liothyronine) were normal. Should i be worried?

Was it 9.44?: 944 would be extremely high number for my lab unless your lab has a different scale. 9.44 is just a little high and could be present with normal t4and t3 (liothyronine). It would be consistent with early hypothyroidism. With your other symptoms most doctors would be considering treatment.

Yes!: The blood tests are measuring functionality, not tissue structure. See another endo and get a biopsy.
