Re: starting thryoid, muscle aches
Sorry I was unclear, judekate. When I'm hypo, I have rather vivid dreams (with lots of action) and I wake frequently during the night.
But the most vivid and complicated/disturbing dreams are those I have in the morning when I'm partially awake. I call those "waking dreams," though it may be a misnomer.
I feel okay -- almost like I should get up and start my day -- when my sleep is disturbed through the night. But in the morning I feel unrefreshed by my sleep and want to stay in bed forever. I used to think that was a sign of too much sleep, but now I think it's just part of my personal hypo/insomnia pattern.
To make it more confusing, I also have disturbed sleep when I'm hyper, but this is usually associated with my skin temperature being too hot. (When I'm hypo, I'll also awaken because I'm too cold.)
I think I'm ready for a new body thermostat. Anyone know where to get one? <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/wink.gif">
