I have a consultation in June with the NHS but the case

Resolved Question:

I have a consultation in June with the NHS but the case got more severe since December when it was first diagnosed.
The most recent Thyroid function test shows the following :
"Serum TSH level" > 100.00 mu/L (0.27 - 4.20) "High"
Will be filed as: 100 mU/L
"Serum free T4 level" 1.9 pmol/L (12 - 22) "Low"
The GP recommended Thyroxine (?) but I wanted an experts opinion, any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance.

HelloThis is a dangerous level if that is correct.Go to A&EAny level like this requires a brief hospitalization.Your GP should have been more onto this in my view. OK, so you might have more questions or want to give me more information: Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent—that’s how we are paid, per rating]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.

Thank you for your answer
Is A&E taking patients like this? I mean is it an emergency? Also I have a 6months old baby, I'm still breastfeeding. Would it effect this anyhow?

Also this thyroxine what the gp recommended, should i take it? Or rather go to A&E?

You should do what your GP says.If you have any symptoms at all, you should go to A&E.Tell me your reference range on your lab for the tSH.
