First, let me tell you this. This may be absolutely normal in your kid.

Second, slightly high TSH is fine. You may repeat the test after a couple of months. A high calcium level can cause the warm sensation. However, it cannot be taken as a long-term chronic cause of her symptoms.

Wait and watch would be fine for some time now. My gut feeling says she is perfectly normal.

Hope this helps.
