In brief: Poor control
Although your doc may tell you, your numbers are fine, it is possible that you are not under optimal control.
Anhedonia (numb emotionally) may be coming form insufficient hormone or hormone action. Your TSH should be between 1-2, your ft4 normal and total T3 (liothyronine) normal showing optimal conversion. Generics have erratic content as well as absorption. Follow instructions exactly.
