Hyperthyroidism causes the body to be on overdrive all the time. This causes tension, nervousness and sleeplessness. This is because of the anxiety of the condition makes it more difficult to sleep. You heart rate is up, you feel trebly and hot, and you find it difficult to relax. It is a necessary element in getting to sleep. When you go to bed your body relaxes both physically and mentally in order to be able to fall asleep. If your body is physically uncomfortable it might be difficult to get any rest. If your body is on overdrive physically, it causes the mind to be active as well. You may benefit from something like Ativan before bed. Although my sleep conditions are different than yours it helps me with anxiety and calms my mind so I can sleep.
