I cannot go into to my work Microsoft account (I am the administrator) without getting a code from Authenticator, but I can't log into/set up authenticator without a code from Authenticator.
When I select that I don't have access to Authenticator it just takes me to a screen asking for the code from Authenticator.

Can anyone help me or am I doomed to circle this forever?

    You'll need to raise a support call with Microsoft, and one of the first things they will do is get you to setup your break glass account properly so you can't lock yourself out again.
