What test result was 99?  If it was TSH, that's not good; however, there are other tests you need to have done, as well.  TSH is not a "thyroid number"; it's a pituitary hormone that is used as an indicator of thyroid status.  

There is no ideal number for your thyroid.  There are reference ranges, within which we should fall; however, everyone is different and what might be good for me, won't be good for you.  BTW - I do have hypothyroidism.

You might want to check out the thyroid forum, here on MedHelp.  There's a ton of information and some very knowledgeable people there that would help you get the proper testing/treatment.
