Very high TSH itself causes all these symptoms and also higher ESR and CRP. So wait for your TSH to come down to normal with treatment of thyroxin hormone and then you will see difference not only in your symptoms but also in your ESR and CRP levels. In case they do not normalise 2 months after normalisation of your TSH then make sure you see a general physician to get investigated to rule out other causes. Take care.
