Sleep Issue/Menopause/Thyroid

(3 Posts)

Hi All, Can anyone please give me some advise ? I've been having sleep issues for about 3 months or more now. I've been waking at least 3-4 times a night sometimes every hour and completely wide awake. I'm definitely perimenopausal and sometimes I wake really hot. I've not had a period for over 2 months, very up and down before that. Does anyone else get this ? I did look into it being a thyroid problem - could this be the case ? It's getting me down now and I sort of dread going to bed.... I've also got a little bit of being fed-up (not depression) Any help please ! Thanks so much.

How old are you? Are they hot flushes that are waking you?

I am 46, started being perimenopausal at 42 (like my Mum) Sometimes it's hot flushes other times not - not 100% sure. It's the waking really wide awake that is weird....... Thanks for replying smile
