Thyroid Insomnia Causes and Reviews


What is Insomnia?

Insomnia is a common sleep disorder. If you have it, you may have trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, or both. As a result, you may get too little sleep or have poor-quality sleep. You may not feel refreshed when you wake up.

What are the symptoms of Insomnia?

Symptoms of Insomnia include:

  • Lying awake for a long time before you fall asleep
  • Sleeping for only short periods
  • Being awake for much of the night
  • Feeling as if you haven't slept at all
  • Waking up too early
What are the types of Insomnia?

Insomnia can be acute (short-term) or chronic (ongoing). Acute Insomnia is common. Common causes include stress at work, family pressures, or a traumatic event. It usually lasts for days or weeks.

Chronic Insomnia lasts for a month or longer. Most cases of chronic Insomnia are secondary. This means they are the symptom or side effect of some other problem, such as certain medical conditions, medicines, and other sleep disorders. Substances such as caffeine, tobacco, and alcohol can also be a cause.

Sometimes chronic Insomnia is the primary problem. This means that it is not caused by something else. Its cause is not well understood, but long-lasting stress, emotional upset, travel and shift work can be factors. Primary Insomnia usually lasts more than one month.

Who gets Insomnia?

Insomnia is common. It affects women more often than men. You can get it at any age, but older adults are more likely to have it. You are also at higher risk of Insomnia if you

  • Have a lot of stress
  • Are depressed or have other emotional distress, such as divorce or death of a spouse
  • Have a lower income
  • Work at night or have frequent major shifts in your work hours
  • Travel long distances with time changes
  • Have an inactive lifestyle
  • Are African American; research shows that African Americans take longer to fall asleep, don't sleep as well, and have more sleep-related breathing problems than whites.
What other problems can Insomnia cause?

Insomnia can cause daytime sleepiness and a lack of energy. It also can make you feel anxious, depressed, or irritable. You may have trouble focusing on tasks, paying attention, learning, and remembering. Insomnia also can cause other serious problems. For example, it could make you may feel drowsy while driving. This could cause you get into a car accident.

How is Insomnia diagnosed?

To diagnose Insomnia, your health care provider

  • Takes your medical history
  • Asks for your sleep history. Your provider will ask you for details about your sleep habits.
  • Does a physical exam, to rule out other medical problems that might cause Insomnia
  • May recommend a sleep study. A sleep study measures how well you sleep and how your body responds to sleep problems.
What are the treatments for Insomnia?

Treatments include lifestyle changes, counseling, and medicines:

  • Lifestyle changes, including good sleep habits, often help relieve acute (short-term) Insomnia. These changes might make it easier for you to fall asleep and stay asleep.
  • A type of counseling called cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) can help relieve the anxiety linked to chronic (ongoing) Insomnia
  • Several medicines also can help relieve your Insomnia and allow you to re-establish a regular sleep schedule

If your Insomnia is the symptom or side effect of another problem, it's important to treat that problem (if possible).

Thyroid Insomnia Reviews

Sat, 03 Sep 2011

I have only been on it five days, it is better than nothing so far. My own Thyroid production took a downfall and I am used to Armour Thyroid which has been my doctor's first choice for years. I was told by my European Doctor that SynThyroid is just what it says, synthetic Thyroid and that is why I have been on Armour Thyroid as I trust his advice. What has happened for my individual case recently is that my Thyroid production went too low and my current doctor reccomended levoThyroid, insisted on it. I do not feel very good, like a light is flickering out on my energy level right now. The other variable for my sluggishness has been diagnosed with Narcolepcy with sleep apnea. So I have a C-Pap for oxygen support since I was told my breathing is irregular. So now I am trusting levoThyroid to help me from feeling weak and sluggish. It is probably too soon to tell but I feel slightly better today than a few days ago.

In the Spring of 2008 I went to my PCP for allergy symptoms, and when he felt my neck glands to make sure that I didn't have something similiar to strept throat, he said that's the biggest Thyrioid I've ever felt, well 2 weeks later the surgeon was removing my Thyroid and 2 tumors (one wrapped around my esophagus and the other around my neck), when the one came off of my neck the C3-5 vertabrae collasped. had the I-131, with a all clear 3 months later. Yeahhh, until the end of 2010 when I started having neck pain and problems swallowing, well that's when they found out that the vertabrea had crushed itself and that I have 2-3 more lumps on my throat (Had another bout with the I-131) but uptake scan proved unsuccessful and noone will take them out, even though they burn and sting. My pain management doc thinks I'm crazy because my body is attacking itself and I'm either breaking bones or pulling something that doesn't need to be pulled. They truly don't understand what it's like. Well, no doc is going to work on the back of the neck until they take the lumps out and then they won't take the lumps out until the neck gets fixed. I even had one surgeon tell me to go to one of the Seattle Hospitals and find myself a Doctor House person. I don't think that there is one of those and if there is - it would be wayyyy too spendy for a poor little admin to come up with the money. But, believe me I'm not stopping trying, yes my body hurts and yes I take things to help try and heal me because it's apparent that they only think that it can't possibly be that I hurt all of the time and my body is fighting itself. Thyroid Cancer maybe the silent killer, but it's about time that we made some noise and let everyone know what we are going through.

My husbadn is almost 52, and he has been very ill with a chronic GI condition for the last 12 months. He has been in and out of the hospital and had his gull bladder and appendix removed. They still have no diagnosis for the GI problems. Now last week he was diagnosed with Papillary Thyroid Cancer. It seems that the nodules are 3.7cm on the left and 1.9cm on the right. We see the endo this week, but I am really concerned. He has had an active Thyroid for years. High metabolism and he has had problems with swallowing and tenderness for a long time (aprox 10 years). They never thought to check his Thyroid until now. Could he have distant metastisis???

Fri, 03 Feb 2012

I'm losing a lot of weight. Was 110 when started on Armour. Lost 15 lbs in one year. Take 90

Thu, 28 May 2009
Recently I was put on medication for Thyroid. Its a powder compound and they put into capsules for me to take. Its 60mg 1 daily then after one week 1 twice a day. I took it Saturday no side effects. Then Sunday I had no energy and I was so cold I could not get warm then I was so hot. Is it a side effect or is it a simple virus.
Thu, 14 Jun 2012
I have been getting these little blister sores that bust and turn into scap little sores. I have noticed it since about a month or so after found out my Thyroid is not working right. Could this be a side effect from the medication
