Post More ?'s

Hi everyone! Hope you're all having a great day. I have some more questions to shoot out atcha.
First of all, doc increased my synthroid about 11 days ago from 0.05mg to 0.075mg. A couple of nights after that, I started having trouble falling asleep. I finally fall asleep around 2 or 3am and wake up about 8ish. Before I started synthroid back in early August, I was sleeping 10-12 hours every night. With 0.05mg, I slept about 8 hours a night. No matter how long I slept, I always woke up tired. Also, since I started the 0.075 mg, my hands tend to get shaky at times. Does that mean that I'm getting a little on the hyper side?
Second, my doc ordered a sleep study for me. The results have come in. I haven't spoken to the doctor who did the study. He sent a letter in the mail telling me the results. It says that I have mild sleep apnea. But I also have restless leg syndrome (my husband has told me that for years). Hubby made me a little mad today so maybe tonight I can kick him and use the syndrome as an excuse? Also, doc says I have an upper airway resistance syndrome. I'm scheduled to do a CPAP study on the 15th. They want to see if I can handle sleeping with the CPAP mask on. THe doc also wants to start me on Mirapex 0.125mg every night before I go to bed. Would this medication effect my synthroid? And does any of this have any connection to the hypothyroidism? Also, I have had a dry cough off and on for some time now. Feels like something's stuck in my throat but nothing's there. Also a tickly feeling in throat causing coughs. Once in a while, I feel like I'm choking and cough till I almost,well,you know (and sometimes have). Could this be realted to thyroid too? Thanks.

It's been almost 1 month since my surgery.
I didn't feel any difference in sleeping than when I was without synthroid. But some mornings I feel good, and other mornings I wake up feeling so tired.

I also feel something stuck in my throat. One time it was so bad, I threw up after I finished my dinner. So far, I haven't heard any satisfying answer from my doctors. I found that if I talk softly or decrease the frequency, that feeling like having something stuck in my throat is not as bad.

Same here. If I don't talk for a while, I don't have that feeling so much. But if I raise my voice at my teenage son, the feeling is there. And I seem to cough more when I lay down. Don't know why that is. Did you have your whole thyroid removed?
