I have been having such troubles sleeping. I am so tired during the day and never feel refreshed when I wake up. At night I have such anxiety surrounded around the thought of laying down to go to sleep because I can't fall asleep. I spend hours upon hours in bed in the dark trying to fall asleep and just can't sleep. I always have all these awful thoughts that always find their way into my head around that time and when I finally DO fall asleep hours later I have nightmares of people trying to kill me. I am so frustrated!!! My therapist months ago when I was actually going to her told me I had insomnia and depression and now I question if this is all related to my thyroid. Side note - my TSH is within range and my T4 is only slightly over. I have Hashimoto's and my doctor said he doesn't think I need any medication since my levels are fine or not that off. Sigh..I have no idea what is related to my thyroid and what isn't anymore. I just want to be able to sleep and wake up feeling refreshed! Does anyone else have these difficulties?
