What causes elevated TSH levels?

Hi. I haven t received all my blood work back yet. But I did get back my tsh it was 24.050. But four months ago it was 1.9. I am very sick right now. My knees and body aches constantly. I can barely make it up stairs and I m on 35. O and slightly low co2 but was just wondering if I could be feeling this way due to tsh level? Thank you Christine
