Need help interpreting thyroid test results

Hello, this is an addition to my first post as it was not complete. What an awesome community. I have learned a lot and I’m grateful. I will post my info below according to your suggestions for getting the best response.

I am a 57 year old female with about a three year diagnosis of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. I have had very high numbers (TSH 33 and Antibodies over 900) in the past and even during that time, the lack of bothersome symptoms have baffled my doctors. My most current numbers are below.

Ferritin - 145 (13 - 150)
T3 Triiodothyronine - 1.4 (0.8 - 2.0)
T4 Thyroxine - 6.4 (4.5 - 9.8)
Free T3 - 3.2 (2.0 - 4.4)
Free T4 - 0.9 (0.9 - 1.7)
TSH - 9.050 (0.111 - 4.910)
Anti-TPO - 428 (<34)
Reverse T3 - 10 (7-23)
Anti TG - 182.0 (<115.0)
D3 - 0.8 (0.4 - 1.8)
Selenium - 204.8 (109.8 - 218.4)
B12 - 773 (232 - 1245)
Other B vitamins are low normal to mid normal. None are below normal.

Symptoms - one third of my eyebrows were gone for about a year. They are returning. Hair slightly less thick in front, but I would not call it thinning.  I can’t fall asleep sometimes, though my entire life I’ve slept only 5-6 hours and rarely feel tired sleep or not. I feel great most of the time but have a bit of foggy memory like forgetting where my keys are, etc.  

Ultrasound -

The thyroid gland is normal in size and heterogeneous and increased vascular echotexture.
Right lobe - 4.6 x 1.4 x 1.7 cm
Left lobe - 4.1 x 1.3 x 1.5 cm
The isthmus measures approx. 2 mm in thickness.
Nodules - Right-none.  Left - Round slightly hyperechoic nodule is present left inferior lobe 6 x 5 x 5 mm.

Impression: Normal thyroid sizes. Increased vascularity to both thyroid lobes may represent a change related to patient’s known hyperthyroidism. No further follow up is recommended.

Current meds - LDN at 1-2 mg per night and just began progesterone at 50 mg per night. Did try NP Thyroid for several months last year, but my TSH went to 33 from 15 and antibodies went up to over 900.

I hope this posts correctly this time. Thanks for reading.
