Confused

Ok, I'm really confused. I have had all the symptoms of thyroid problems for years but my levels for the most part have always been normal with the exception my doctor always told me my levels always fluctuated to much between my TSH and T3 but it was normal so nothing else was done. Then about 10 years ago my thyroid was enlarged so a scan and ultrasound was done and multiple goiters was done but was found to be non-malignant and have not changed over time. Over the years I have continued to struggle with many thyroid symptoms, chronic fatigue, hair loss, insomnia, dry skin, depression, etc. etc list is never ending and the more I read I can relate what seems to be what even more of my symptoms. At any rate, I went to the Dr. today and she ordered another complete thyroid panel including a reverse t3. If this is elevated what does this indicate in simple terms? Can someone explain this in general to me? I would greatly appreciate it.
