I fell horible and found out my TSH level is 99.9, a week ago and still not feeling good.  How long does it take?

I know my TSH had been on the high point . Could this be the problem of my high blood pressure. Recently I was put on Valsartan HCT and I feel awful. Tired spaced cold...not me but my Dr felt I needed this
