What causes fatigue, insomnia and weight gain while on Levothyroxine?

Hi! I am Abby i have been using Levothyroxin before having the surgery to remove a goiter way back 2003 then took it for 1 year then it was stopped by my endocrinologist. For the past year i started to feel the symptoms i felt before the surgery. My family doctor always telling me that my blood reports are normal that my thyroid is working well but i don t feel that way. It is hard for me to focus & concentrate ,i feel tired always,cant sleep well, its hard for me to loss weight. I wonder if my thyroid has something to do about it?

Kindly get free T3 and FREE T4 tests and TSH Test done. it may show the abnormality which can be corrected by thyroxine supplements.
