Brief Answer:
As below

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
WHy dont you get the blood work repeated afresh ?
Your symptoms are very suggestive of menopause or perimenopause.
I am sure that would reflect in the bloodwork if done right now.
So please do that and upload the reports.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Take care.
