my hubby and i both have slow thyroid. i sleep ok but i dont get enough if it during the week. he sleeps terriably. but i am am hoping if i keep working on my sleep habits. it may help him also.

there are so many issues that we have because we dont sleep enough and then ironically we get illnesses that make it harder for us to sleep. all we can do is not give up and keep looking for answers and put effort into healthy habits.

I finally made it to my general practitioner and he diagnosed me with anxiety and depression. He says it is the anxiety that is keeping me from sleeping through the night. I was totally thrown by this diagnosis. I started taking the Prozac and will wait to see if that helps with my sleeping any. Thank you all for your suggestions and comments!

Thank you all for your advice. I have not been tested yet, but think I should go and talk to my doctor about what I have been experiencing.

I know when I was first diagnosed with diabetes, the fatigue was prominent when my blood sugars were out of control. Please see a doctor... there really can be so many things playing into this... even stress...

Hypothyroidism can cause sleep issues. Go to the Mayo Clinic website to read up on this condition. Also there are some really good books you can read on this subject. Email me so I can give you the titles.

If you have been diagnosed with this condition make sure you have a good Endo provider.

I don't have hypothyroid but there is really only one true way that I ever heard of to know for sure... see the doctor and get a blood test... I would think that any number of factors can play into this and it really is better safe than sorry... I know I've been tested for it, but had other issues that caused the fatigue and sleepiness..

Even with my focus on getting a good night's sleep, I always seem to be tired. I have cut my caffeine down to two cups of day in the early morning only and I now believe that I can no longer drink alcohol as even one glass seems to keep me up at night. This entire week I am off from work so I have been working on catching up on my sleep. I have been sleeping 9.5 hours each night and I am still tired. I just read an article on hypothyroidism and wonder if that could be affecting me? I just haven't felt right in quite a while. Does anyone have experience with hypothyroidism? Could this be the cause of my sleepiness?
