Hypothyroidism?

Hi all - I'm new to this community. I have been struggling with some symptoms that I think are consistent with hypothyroidism but my doctor disagrees. These include, inability to lose weight (despite exercise and eating healthy), dry skin, burning in my legs (not neuropathy, I've been tested), moodiness, loss of appetite, dizziness, feeling tired, etc.

In addition, blood work almost a year ago found:
High cholesterol = 296
High prolactin level (but no pituitary tumor) = 154
TSH = 1.23
T4 Free = 1.04
T3 Free = 2.2

I don't know what to do because my doctor says that my blood work doesn't show hypothyroidism but my symptoms are consistent with what I've read online, especially with the high prolactin and high cholesterol levels that are unexplained as of yet.

Any suggestions?
