insomnia/anxiety/memoryloss, cognitive skills worsening.

I'm a teenage female, I've been experiencing on and off insomnia since the O levels of last year (I blamed it on stress) but it persists even now when I'm not particularly stressed. I also tend to suffer from anxiety attacks and mood swings.
Throughout the past year, these past months especially, I've noticed my cognitive skills worsening. I'm getting clumsier, I misgudge distances (I run into doors more, I almost fall off chairs because I sit myself down too close to the edge), and I'm having a really difficult time retaining new information. My memory was always bad, but now I forget my friends' names, and I can't even seem to remember the name of the career I've had my eye on for 3 years.
My doctor has suggested thyroid might be the cause, but I don't think that's it.
