Higher than normal TSH, but doc says I am fine.

I am a 28 year old female, and six months ago my doctor tested my TSH levels (I still don't know why he decided to do it). My TSH was 7.7 and my T4 was .84; this test was done at 4:00 pm. My doctor wanted to wait 6 months to retest, which I had done two days ago. They called and told me that my levels were fine this time, but didn't tell me any details. Today I went and got my actual results. My TSH was lower than it was, but still outside of the normal range at 5.1 (even their paper said .3-3.7 is the normal range), and my T4 was at .9 (right in the middle of their range of .7-1.9). This test was done at 12:43 pm. I have heard that thyroid levels can fluctuate during the day.

I have read about the symptoms, and I seem to have a few that I always attributed to other causes.

My doc says I am fine, should I look into it with a different doctor?

There's nothing wrong with getting a second opinion.
