i have recently received ultrasound results showing 2 cysts on my thyroid and a likely diagnosis of thyroiditis. i see my doc this week to discuss bloodwork results. i was just wondering if any of you experience symptoms at night that you don't have during the day.
for example, sometimes i wake up with heart palpitations, chest pain and sweats in the middle of the night. other times one or both hands are asleep. i also have intermittent restless legs and pain in my head, among other general weirdness during the night.
last night was particularly bad--thought i was having a heart attack for sure. i recall having read somewhere that thyroiditis attacks often occur at night, but wanted some first-hand experiences from real-live folks!
A lot of my symptoms arise (or seem worse) at night because I'm trying to sleep and not thinking of a thousand different things like I do during the day -- in other words, I have time to concentrate on them.
I've had Hashimoto's Thyroiditis for some time and have experienced "attacks", but when I get them they last much longer than just over night.
