Hi
Thanks for the question
You can recheck ( sometimes lab. error cant be excluded) the thyroid profile including T3, T4, TSH, and also check for FASTING BLOOD SUGAR and post prandial blood sugar and consult an endocrinologist. This may be hypothyorodism inadequately treated or coexisting Diavetes. But, importantly, hypothyoridism patients are more prone to develop depression the symptoms (like sleep problem, dullness. not having energy, weight gain.loss,) of which can overlap with hat of hypothyoridism. Also presence of depression, if not treated, will make the hypothyoridism treatment unsatisfactory. So ake a psychiatrist opinion too. along with diet and exercise. Wish you a good luck.

Yes I agree thatyou are suffering wothout sleep and also the increase in weight with so many other problems so common to hypothyroid patients. First of all you must increase your thronorm to 1 1/2 tablets daily. Secondly check your bolood sugar for early diabetes that shows increase in weight early. Exercise will also help you. For sleep. you may consult a general physician or a Psychiatrist and tak some sedatives other than Alprozalam which many doctors will prescribe. It is the worst of all pills and will lead you to addiction. Avoid cabbage and fatty food.

Does the rocking of a ship increase insomnia in those who have recently had a stroke and exhibit an increased startle reaction? I recently shared a cabin with a stroke victim who claimed she could not sleep all night. What I noticed is that repeatedly in the middle of the night she would suddenly and violently wake up without cause and think I was making noise. She also the week before the trip underwent an invasive procedure endoscopicly to see if she needed a stint placed in her artery. Could she be reacting to that, too? She claimed she slept better once we were in a hotel on land and I got my own cabin. Others in my family report that I am a quiet sleeper, so I believe I am not the cause of her insomnia which has plagued her all her life. A very light sleeper, or is something more serious going on that her doctor needs to know about? Thanks for your answer in advance. Nina Daniel
