Basically I've been having intermittent sleep problems.
Background info: am hypo, increased from 50 to 75mg levo in Sept. diagnosed with flat adrenals in Jan, taking b vits & liquorice/ginseng to help. My TSH, T3 & 4 are fine, but my tissue uptake is poor, diagnosed in Jan too.
Sleep problems started after increase, peaking 6-8 weeks after, then have got into pattern of increasing breaks between, so had a good month up to Xmas, then a bad week early jan, been fine since then, now having another bad week. The length of time between bouts of sleeplessness is increasing. It's specifically that I can't get to sleep. Also when that's happening I get more irritable/anxious/stressed than usual about things that wouldn't usually bother me, plus feel really flat.
I can't work out if its thyroxine build up/toxicity or my adrenals, any thoughts?
In between times I'm feeling generally quite ok, just desperate to shake off this issue and move on.
Any suggestions much appreciated.
