Thought I was EFH, but started tracking my calories and realized I seriously needed to up things. So I’ve increased calories, carbs/sugar in particular. I’m also on a thyroid supp.
Day 2 of this- Was sleepy-ish some of the day and although I was warm, wasn’t uncomfortable. As soon as I got into bed, I was a million degrees and couldn’t sleep for several hours.
Day 3: essentially same, but I cut back on my thyroid meds and calories a bit. At bedtime, ridiculously warm and couldn’t fall asleep for several hours.
So a couple questions:
1) Why does getting into bed (or maybe just the 10pm hour) make me ridiculously hot when I was only warm-ish all day (and even had chilly nose & feet at times). And no, I didn’t eat 20-30 mins before bed.
2) Any advice on how to gauge cutting down on thyroid supp? My doctor won’t understand why manipulating my food intake will make a difference with dosage.
