hi, this is post regarding my partner so not a thyroid sufferer as such (although he has to deal with me on a daily basis so kind of is! :/ )
sometimes it takes him a while to get off to sleep but has a really bad habit of waking 4am-6am most mornings, way before he has to for work. it is a habit from working regularly but has had lots of time off lately so really doesn't need to get up but he says he cant explain it, he just spends hours tossing & turning sometimes then gives up and goes downstairs for a tea.
of course, he then gets horribly tired and can go back to sleep late morning (if not got work) naps in the day and the cycle begins again.
is there anything i can give him supplement wise or tests he could maybe get that has helped other insomnia sufferers on here? my insomnia was to do with a hashi's flare up so not quite the same. TIA
