    Hyperthyroidism Sleep Disturbance

    I experience sleep disturbances in the form of tremors, including muscle twitching and spasms. This results in exhaustion, fatigue and back pain. I had my blood work taken and my TSH is low. Does anybody else experience these symptoms? How long has does it take to get better after your dose is adjusted correctly. This has been going on for about 7 years now off and on. (mostly on). I was diagnosed with Hoshimoto's thyroiditis almost 3 years ago. I am on 75 mcg of Synthroid.

    Re: Hyperthyroidism Sleep Disturbance

    With a low TSH, your synthroid dose may be too high, making you hyperthyroid. You need to have free T4 and T3 levels done. If those are high, your dose should be adjusted downward, and your symptoms may improve (if they are related).
