burning aching back, fatigue, etc.

I have been on Synthroid for about three months, but in the meantime, I have been having almost daily flanch aches and a frequent, mild burning sensation between my shoulderblades. Moreover, I have been having a real hard time waking up, and usually take about an hour to rouse myself. Night time I have a hard time going to sleep, and this is when I usually get my second wind.
I have had many blood tests to measure kidney and liver panels, with both being good, and even now, using my urinalysis strips, I have no protein or blood in my urine, ever. I also concentrate my urine fairly well, but still have a lot of urination. I suspect mild diabetes insipidis.
I have a doctors appointment in about a week to get my ACTH stim test. What other tests might I want to get? Should I ask about getting my ferritin or hemoglobin counts, or any other test? I feel slightly itchy, dry skin, also.
