lupus,insomnia,hypothyroid etc

Im so confused...

I have mild lupus and Im hypothyroid...I was sleeping like 10 hours before. My thyroids been bouncing around a little lately, but mostly to the slower side (hypo). Im on plaque nil and synthroid...I get my thyroid checked every 3 months, because Im keeping an eye on that one...i feel better between 1-3 range (Im in Canada)....Im pretty sure when i was put on plaquinil (hydochloroquine?) it was suppressng my thyroid more ,to be slower...That med was giving me some little different side effects, so cut med in half...then again , so I'm down to one every other day....I thought for sure my thyroid would be more hypo this latest test, but unless its a mistake, its gone to the hyper side.

Last 2 nights my brain will not shut off at night time....Funny thing is, if my thyroid has gone hyper ..it did it from december 2nd to Jan. 28th from slow 2.59...to fast way 0.77...thats pretty quick! Its still considered a normal range all that, but i didn't think thyroid moved that quickly...and I thought Lupus problems made you a sleepy person?

I had them check my CRP and ANA and C3 C4 again since the reduction in plaquinil (hydrochloroquine)...my CRP just came up slightly..my C3 C4 was in normal range, just waiting on the ANA...It was Doc said to try the med every other day...PS?also not that many years post menopause...also....started the latest lowering of plaquenil ( hydrochloroquine) end of November...had lowered before, but guess this big diff, from the 2 pills..thn to one every day, then down to one every other day...I started at 400...like 200 morn/200 eve at first in June 2013...then 2 months Aug. later down to 200 mg every day, then end of Nov. 200 mg every other day....
