Just a quick note to say hi! I read your post and feel that you're struggling with Fibromyalgia symptoms which involves the adrenals, thyroid and other hormones like pregnenolone, progesterone, estrogen. I am currently being treated for this condition and balancing the hormones brings back refreshed sleep and less pain in muscles.
What kind of insomnia did you experience from your thyroid disorder? Just less hours of sleep or frequent awakenings/abnormal sleep structure/no deep sleep/little rem? I think I may have hyperthyroidism. I'm wondering if it causes the insomnia I have. How did your insomnia specifically ruin your health? Did it prematurely age you as well- looks wise? Thank you!
I read your post about thyroid, adrenal and sleep problems. High cortisol can absolutely screw up your sleep. For myself, my cortisol levels are opposite the normal making it very difficult for me to go to sleep until the wee hours of the morning. My circadian rhythm is upside down!
