With a TSH of over 75...get on those T4 meds and get your FT3 and FT4 done and also antibody testing for Graves and Hashi's.
It is possible to to be hyperthyroid and then the thyroid burn out and be hypo.
But get those other tests done asap and get labs done regulary so as to assertain if you are on a high enough dose of T4 med.
A TSH of over 75 can be dangerous.
Once you have the T4 med in your system and levels start to stabalise , the brain fog (daze) will start to disappear.
