My TSH is 10.2 and free T3 (liothyronine) and T4 are normal. What are the next steps?

Elevated TSH. A normal TSH should be less than 5. A TSH that elevated suggests hypothyroidism, and should be treated with thyroid replacement.
Consider treatment. Your physician may consider treating you for low thyroid, even with normal T3 (liothyronine) and t4. Your physician will consider any symptoms you may be having and other medical conditions you may have. Subclinical hypothyroidism is the term for what you describe and studies indicate there may be benefit to treatment. Additional discussion with your doctor is needed.

My TSH is 0.01 whereas my free T3 (liothyronine) and free T4 are normal. I feel horrible, but my doc says I am ok. Next steps?

Depends. Hi. You most likely: 1) are in a phase of a subacute thyroiditis, or 2) have one or more autonomously hyperfunctioning thyroid nodules. Those two can be distinguished by following your TSH, free T4, and Free T3 (liothyronine) over time, or by doing a nuclear medicine thyroid uptakes and scan. You can feel crummy from either condition. Subacute thyroiditis usually resolves on its own; hyper nodules need treatment. Read more...

Hypothyroid. Subclinical hypothyroid. The thyroid is producing enough hormone but it is requiring more of the signaling hormone to do it.
