Can l-thyroxine control 505 TSH level ?

I am taking l-thyroxin 100 mg once a day for more than 7 years by now. Once per year the doctor gives me 1 month break from medicine prior to the blood test . Last week my blood test shown 505 TSH level ((it neve went higher than 100 before) - and I have normal t3 and t4 results. Doc said that I shall not worry and just start taking l-thyroxin in same dosage again once a day and tsh will get back to normal in couple of months. Shall I trust her? or better I shall consult another doctor?

Thanks for query,
Your TSH is very high so it requires evaluation.
There may be some problem with your Pituitary gland..
Better you consult Endocrinologist and get investigated.
Ok and bye.
