Recheck your TSH level and also free T3 and T4 levels. Go for mammography, it is always better to take this investigation. Need more clinical history to evaluate your exact problem and diagnosis so please contact your doctor.

Hi..... The easiest and most effective treatment is simply taking a thyroid hormone pill (Levothyroxine) once a day, preferably in the morning. This medication is a pure synthetic form of T4 which is made in a laboratory to be an exact replacement for the T4 that the human thyroid gland normally secretes. It comes in multiple strengths, which means that an appropriate dosage can almost always be found for each patient. The dosage should be re-evaluated and possibly adjusted monthly until the proper level is established.....
