Sleepy lately - Soooo sleepy.

I have been 90-100% paleo for 3 months from endocrinology recommendation. I just feel sleepy all the time. I am on T3 and T4. I could also take an afternoon nap too. I could get up and do anything also. Is this paleo? I am on extra calcium, D, magnesium and Omega 3 supplements. My muscles are clenching at night. (no stress in life) Any ideas?

OK, I feel silly now. It is the cicadas. I didn't realize I was not sleeping well at night. Thanks for all the help! I guess I really am sensitive to the noise these bugs are making.

I will drop Magnesium. Would Primal Flora do anything to this?

May, I do have control over T4 and can take more or less as needed.

2 main meals: 2 eggs, 2 strips bacon, pumpkin muffin ("practical paleo"), ground pork, zucchini noodles, pumpkin custard (coconut milk) coffee with coconut oil.

100% gluten free. I do make items with coconut flour and tapioca flour for family. I am not really tired, I just could relax all day if I didn't decide to get up and move around.

Try laying off the supplements for a while, especially Magnesium tends to do that to me, just makes me extremely sleepy.

What does 90-100% paleo mean? Are you 100% gluten free? I have found gluten to be the number one offender for chronic fatigue / tiredness. Unfortunately, it takes 100% gluten free to lessen fatigue symptoms if this is the offender.

When's the last time you had your thyroid hormones checked? Even while on the meds, your hormone levels may still lean towards hypo.
