Do any of you feel better with more energy at night? I feel like I've been run over by a MAC truck during the day time, but I'm almost normal at night. Weird.

You might consider asking to have an 8 am fasting blood cortisol tested (and yes, the fasting and timing are important). Some people who have thyroid problems also have adrenal problems. If your adrenals are struggling to produce enough cortisol, evening can be a better time, because cortisol is naturally lower, so there are less demands on the adrenals then.

My doctor wanted me to test early morning but because of my intestinal problems I just can't get up and get going at that early time. So we're going to do the saliva test which I have heard is best anyway.

Just ask for the saliva test hon, not the blood test. There's no real name, it's just a saliva test. :)

Answered 8 months ago    reply

It all started for me after I had my daughter. I barely slept and never knew why. My husband and I started arguing to the point I thought we were getting divorced. Anything bad you can imagine was happening. My body crashed and that’s when my thyroid started giving me issues and my doc also said adrenals. I found an article about it. I still struggle so much and my daughter is almost 3. https://www.naturalnews.com/048896_adrenal_fatigue_symptoms_natural_remedies.html

Not sure what following the circadian rhythem is?

Troup_71
Answered 8 months ago    reply

benitaThe circadian rhythm is the body's internal biological clock.

This link has detailed simplifies definition of the circadian rhythm:

https://www.psychologytoday.com/basics/circadian-rhythm

The first step is to practice good sleep hygeine by going to bed by 10.30pm at the latest. Also, try not to do any visual stimulating activities at least half an hour before bed. You can listen podcasts, audio books or relaxing music in the dark. If you do choose to look at any screen at night or turn on your lights, you should reduce your blue light exposure from these after sunset.

When it is day light outside, the sun produces blue light and sends signals to our brain that you need to be awake. This way we natural produce cortisol. Blue light from electronc screens send a signal to your brain that it's still day light outside, therefore, delays your brain from making melatonin early enough to make you sleepy and instead raise your cortisol at night. This keeps you awake

You can reduce your blue light exposure via many mays such as blue light filter apps on your devices, physical filters on screens, dim/red light bulbs, blue blocking glasses (most ideal/practical). If possible, you should try to keep your house as dark as possible at night. Ideally, your bedroom should be pitch black at night. If that's not possible you try to wear a sleeping mask at night. In a pitch black environment, your brain produces melatonin faster.

You can read more about blue light exposure from harvard university

Also try the glasses too. The app will only be effective if you don't turn on your lights at night.
