Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Welcome and thank you for asking on HCM!

I passed carefully through your question and would explain that your symptoms could be related to the thyroid gland dysfunction.

Low blood pressure or orthostatic hypotension could also explain this clinical situation.

Have you measured your blood pressure values?

Coming to this point, I would recommend consulting with your attending physician and performing some tests:

- thyroid hormone levels
- complete blood count for anemia
- blood electrolytes for possible electrolyte imbalance
- a Head Up tilt test for possible orthostatic hypotension.

A wrong position during sleep can trigger this situation. For this reason, I recommend using an orthopedic pillow.

You should discuss with your doctor on the above issues.

Hope you will find this answer helpful!

Kind regards,

Dr. Iliri
