Hi all, well I've adopted my change of lifestyle as directed by my thyroid support group leader, however a few things have been bothering me lately.
I've now changed my thyroxine dose to 100mcg and take this at night as I get a small "buzz" within a short space of time of taking it during the day. However although I took it before bedtime last night I woke up during the early hours of the morning and found it very hard to go back to sleep. The thyroxine wouldn't have done that as it's only happened once, surely? If so should I go back to my GP about it? I usually sleep all the way through from say, 11pm to 7:30am, so for me to get insomnia is unheard of. I don't drink any caffeine after 8pm either, so I know it's not a caffeine issue.
I've upped my water intake, eaten more fruit and veg and have been off sweets and chocolate since Sunday, however I had very bad constipation this morning. I have no idea why.
I'm pretty sure it's my body's way of saying it doesn't want to adapt, but I don't know what I'm doing wrong.
Can anyone advise?
