Can anyone help? I have terrible insomnia, initially caused by my hyperthyroidism and have been taking temazepam to help me to sleep. I am concerned that I may be too dependent on them and so asked my doctor for something else so I could alternate meds and not get dependent. He gave me zopiclone. It worked well (only taking a quarter dose), so was initially very happy. But then I started getting jaw tension and teeth grinding/sensitivity. Now I have pain radiating from above my front teeth to between my eyes and forehead. I thought it was the zopiclone, although it's not listed as a side effect. But I haven't had a zopiclone now for over a week and it's no better. So I am now wondering if it could be my Graves disease, or even carbimazole. Does anyone else have this? I am on 20mg carbimazole and have been for three months now. My last bloods, 5 weeks ago were:
TSH < 0.01
I am having my next bloods done on 7th July. Thanks.
