Well, this TSH is indicative of hypothyroidism, I am sure you feel bad.
As I said hypo can cause heart problems such as palpitations.
Have they started you on Levo? if yes, is it brand name or generic ? if not, then you need to ask to be referred to an endo, and insist on taking brand name Levo rather than generic, since this will keep your weekly dose consistent !
Also you need to be tested once for thyroid antibodies, those are TPOab and TGab , to see if the cause for you being hypo is hashimoto , an autoimmune thyroiditis.
Levo should be taken on an empty stomach, around the same time every day, one hour before breakfast for it to work .
