In brief: Sounds like you need

You need to have your thyroid levels checked as you could be undertreated.
Furthermore, ensure that timing of your thyroxine ingestion is at least 30min apart from any food or other medication. Caffeinated drinks, soymilk and calcium containing food are all know to interfere with thyroid absorption.
