In brief: It

It is important to get your thyroid level checked yearly.
How much thyroid hormone you need to take to keep your levels normal will likely change as you age. Even small deviations from normal can be hazardous, and in some people thyroid levels can be dangerously abnormal without causing any obvious symptoms.

In brief: Get blood work

Yes, you should get your blood work done.
Your doc will want to know if your levels are still optimum. There will be hints on your labs if your are about to start going either to high or too low on your levels, and these may show up before you feel them. Congrats on the Armour Thyroid by the way. It's an excellent drug - vastly overlooked and under-rated by most practitioners.
