I've been on a new dose (88mcg) Levothyroxine for the past 3 months. My body feels better, more energized, mood swings are basically nonexistent -just overall great. At night though, I'll sleep deeply for a few hours. I wake up, then stay awake for 2-3 hours. When I wake up, I just accept it, I know I need to find something to do our I'll just lay there until my 2-3 hours are up and I can fall back into my deep sleep again.
Something else I've noticed just in the last evening, is my throat/ front of neck where I imagine the thyroid is located, has been feeling a little uncomfortable. When I swallow, it's like I need extra room. It's a tiny bit painful, but mostly just feels strange.
Before I started the 88mcg of Levothyroxine, I was taking 75mcg since I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism in February. I usually slept the whole night, even if I woke up I'd go right back to sleep. There were other problems though, like mood swings, that I am pleasantly surprised are gone since 88mcg.
Has anyone experienced something like this before? I wonder if my 88mcg is too much, or still not enough. It's an improvement, I can live with a few less hours of sleep. I really do have more energy, I just wonder if this is healthy.
Thanks in advance for your feedback, it always helps!
