Hi was accidentally diagnosed with hashimotos during routine blood test. Fine at the time. Progressively become more anxious, sleeping less and now getting private cortisol test and thyroid levels as nhs thyroid all apparently fine. Am in stressful job but have just had four weeks off and sleep pattern no better. Wake sometimes at 3 or 4 as if I have had sudden shock. Heart racing etc and often despite meditation etc can't get back to sleep. On paleo autoimmune diet. Eat really well and go for walks, yoga Pilates etc. nutritionalist thinks all linked to adrenal/thyroid problem hence extra tests. Don't have much money so wondering if any way could get saliva and thyroid hormones (ft3/ft4) done on nhs? Anyone have any luck? Doctor has agreed to send me to endocronologist. Someone recently said that if your doctor refuses a test you should ask for it in writing and then they are Limey to say yes!! Might be a good tip for others. Main problem is sleep! Just wondering if levothyroxin could be cause? Thanks in advance tired and wired member!!
