Lab results. Unsure of diagnosis and treatment

Hi,

I'm looking for some advice. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism in April 2018 but I'm not sure if it was because I asked to see a specialized that they offered to treat me. Initial blood labs were done by general doctor.
Endocrinologist said it was hypothyroidism and mentioned possibly Hashimoto’s. My main complaint was being cold and brain fog. I was started on Levoxyl 25 mcg at this visit under the endocrinologist direction.

At this point in January 2019 I've never seen much different in body heat and brain fog seems a wee bit better but not much. Anxiety has gone up a lot! I'm wondering if treatment is worth it at this point?
