Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

The dose of Thyroxine is mcg (micro) NOT mg (milli)...

Dehydration and diarrhoea could have been responsible...

Being young, you will need a long series of investigations to exclude treatable causes of Hypertension...especially Kidneys, adrenals and so on...
You need regular follow up

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
