    Yes!!!

    Ok, now that I've done some deep breathing......

    I think that's normal for those with hyperthyroidism.

    I really can't say enough about an exercise routine, starting the morning with stretches exercise and breathing exercises, at night its the same. Half an hour in morning and half in evening, it really has helped me. I have a chanting dvd that repeats and goes on for that time.  Its My coping technique but it only started working after a few months and I had to convince myself not to give up. I told myself waking up after being relatively still or sleeping in a possibly awkward position or being in a deep sleep, possibly needs some stretches.  Anyway hope you feel better soon

      I'm glad it's not just me.  I agree that it's best to keep moving and excercise Pat, but I had such a bad morning yesterday I cancelled my Pilates class.  I know it would have made me feel better but I just couldn't get moving enough to get ready.  I've just had another flare up and waiting for things to settle down again.  I seem to be getting different symptoms each time It comes back and this time the fatigue has wiped me out.  I know it will get better......tomorrow is aonother day.

    I remember this well and I couldnt go to the classes, I had to in a way reinvent the wheel for myself.  The exercise that helped me the most was running and breathing exercise.  The tablets are there to help but the symptoms can be so troublesome.   I can recall it was baby steps to begin with just getting some fresh air and shrugging my shoulder was enough to help me.  As is said every little helps!!!!  You are taking steps to manage it and that is all it takes.  Just keep going

    Waking up and getting going in the morning is a lot more physially stressful than we might think.  It's one of the reasons that morning is the time when symptoms are much worse in the morning.

    Definitely!

    It reminds me of early pregnancy in that respect.

    I tend to have a panic attack as well sometimes before getting out of bed.

    Then another one a few hours later. This am I did not have a panic attack until about 12 md. Yesterday when I had one followed by another I felt washed out. all day

    Does anyone know why the mornings are so difficult? In fact to be truthful I dread going to bed the night before and delay it as much as possible!

    May I just say that it is a huge relief to be art of this forum and to know that I am not alone, if you see what I mean. I feel very tired no matter how much sleep I have.

    I suspect that the thyroid has been malfunctioning for a long, long time n and off as the way I feel today is so reminiscent of how I felt a long time ago.

    I thinkthat stress and pregnancy have triggered this off plus infections.

    just want to get well . I have not started any treatment yet.

      Hi Lucy,

      You sound very similar to me - i've been suspecting thyroid issues for well over a year now - since i had an infection so i think its related to that. Anyway, i have not received any treatment yet. so i'm glad i'm not the only one, as there always seems to be something in the way because i tried to get a diagnosis last year, but that went no where and my symptoms at times, seemed to ease, so it wasn't my main prioroty even though it was till sort of bothering me. Than when i want to do to the doctors, i always seem to be too busy as horrible as that sounds.

      I have also found that i have been suffering from panic attacks lately. I think its the anxiety i feel towards the condition andd its symptoms.Its been awful.

      Anyway, hope you feel better soon and we both get diagnosed and treated! smile

    Yes I feel like a 90 year old women whe i first get up, stiff and achy, I limp downstairs and take my Levo tablet then after half hour or so I start to feel okay again, I have wondered if it means that I need a higher dose because the medication has worn out during the night ?!?.
