Normal thyroid levels, but high reverse t3? Still feel sick!

From: Kirsty7771 - 4 years 24 weeks ago

So basically, I have a LOT of the classic Hypothyroid symptoms: Hands and feet cold, chronic fatigue, brain fog, chronic pain, constantly getting sick, irregular periods, and a bunch more. I got my thyroid checked out and I'm just SO confused. (I ordered my labs myself. Haven't seen a doc YET)
Basically, my Reverse t3 levels are above normal, and everything else looks like it's in the normal range. Yet I still feel so crappy!
I'm starting to wonder, is it not Hypothyroidism? I've heard about Euthyroid Sick Syndrome, and other stuff.
Can someone please explain?

Thyroxine Binding Globulin (001735) = 18 ug/mL (Range: 13-39)
Thyroid Peroxidase (TPO) Ab (006676) = 7 IU/mL (Range: 0-26)
Thyroglobulin Antibody (006706) = <1.0 IU/mL (Range: 0.0-0.9)
Reverse T3, Serum (070105) = 30.2 ng/dL (Range: 9.2-24.1)
Thyroid Stim Immunoglobulin (140747) = 50% (Range:1-139)
TSH (004264) = 1.99 uIU/mL (Range: 0.450-4.500)
Triiodothyronine, Free, Serum (010389) = 3.4 pg/mL (Range:2.3-5.0)
T4, Free (Direct) (019745) = 1.43 ng/dL (Range: 0.93-1.60)

Please help. I'm honestly so lost right now.
