Has anyone noticed after becoming hypothyroidism that no matter how much or little sleep you get you still wake up not feeling refreshed? I know I get into REM because I have dreams!

      I just took it as a sign of my depression, but it could be the hypo meds.

      It's the worst! Once my thyroid numbers were back to normal with medication though, the endocrinologist reccomended I get a sleep study and seek better treatment my other medical issues as it should have resolved.

        @MaeBea Yeah same with my endo but I told him that I never had these issues prior to Graves/RAI/Hypothyroidism

      Yes I had fatigue SO bad, but a functional practitioner helped me address it!

      I legit thought I was the only one. I literally could sleep 24 hours straight and still be tired. God forbid I'm on my cycle or I happen to miss my medication I will end up feel like I'm barely hanging on. I had the radioactive idione treatment about 13 years ago. I was hyperactive then turned me hypo.

        @Journey2Peace You still battle with symptoms even after radioactive Iodine?

          @JeffreyShaf yes unfortunately. Initially I felt great and didnt need any meds but after about 8 years post iodine I started going in the opposite direction of hyperactive and now I'm hypo and back on meds. Doctors didn't share that info/side effect with me and I was so young and didn't know any better.

      I don't remember ever waking up feeling refreshed. I didn't even realize that was a symptom. But I developed insomnia at 12 years old so I guess my case is different.
