What questions do I ask?

I have been on thyroid meds for many years. It's a little unbelievable that I take these meds and know so little about what they do and why I take them. My first Dr. tested me because I was sleeping constantly. He asked me lots of questions about how I felt and had me on 3.5g of Amour. Then he died, and I feel my current dr. may be as clueless as I am. Looking over my recent blood work, I notice the only test I can tell would be thyroid related was TSH. It was 3.33. This Dr. has me on Amour 120mg. The Amour was at my request, because my first Dr. tried me on it after still feeling lethargic on synthroid. I had specifically asked that she test my thyroid because my energy level is low, and I wonder if that slows my weight loss. I go back in 3 months, could I get some advice on what I might ask for with my next blood work?
