Hi and thanks for the query.

Your neuttrophils and lymphocytes do not raise concerns at the moment. But your TSH is high which means that you are hypothyroid and with 5.9 and any symptoms like sleepiness, constipation, weight gain, decrease in appetite, confusion and mental slowness you will need to see an Endocrinologist and will need some form of thyroid replacement therapy like levothyroxine.

Hope this helps.
