Thanks for writing to us.

Since you had a stressful period in recent few days that is affecting your sleeping pattern. You are having anxiety because of which you are not able to sleep.
TSH levels can be increased during stress,so dont worry.Repeat your TSH levels after one month again.

Try XXXXXXX breathing exercise. This will help to relieve stress. Go for morning walk. Breathing fresh air will also make you feel relaxed. Do things which you like just like listening to music, playing with childrens. Dont sleep in afternoon. Eat small frequent meals at regular interval. Drink plenty of oral fluids.

Try all this things & you will surely get a good night sleep. You can continue taking Ativan tablet for 10 days at bedtime, if you are still not able to relax. Most importantly do things that makes you feel relaxed. So dont worry. Give yourself & your body time to relax.

I hope i have answered your query. In case you have any further doubt i will be happy to help you.

It's good to hear that you are happy now. Henceforth whenever you feel stressed out just focus on your breath. You will feel better. Do check your TSH level after 1 month.
Take care.
