In brief: Follow doc advise

There are many causes for thyroiditis.
Acute, subacute, hashimoto's, postpartum, drug-induced...Some thyroiditis recovers on its own and does not need treatment while others need definitive treatment. We now have effective options to treat these conditions. See you doctor so he/she can formulate a treatment plan for you or send you to an appropriate specialist.

In brief: Depends

On whether it is temporary or chronic.
If temporary, may just monitor to treat intolerable symptoms until it resolves on its own. If chronic, then close follow up with endo to treat high or low. Your endo can usually tell whether ur case is temp or not.
