Very little sleep and heart palpitations - any advice on eliminating the palpitations?

tions. I have spoken with my doctor, and there is not much that he can do because there is really nothing medically wrong. My blood pressure, cholesterol, and sugar levels are all normal or below normal. My thyroid is fine. An EKG showed nothing. Though I do have stress, I can't say I have been having panic attacks. I find that if I can get more sleep, the palpitations are less frequent, but this is not always the case. I don't feel as if there is anything wrong with me so to speak, but the palpitations are truly annoying. Changing my lifestyle is not an option at this point because financially, I cannot afford to not work both jobs. Is there a supplement, vitamin, etc., that has been known to reduce or eliminate palpitations?...

Type 1 diabetic multiple medications?

, I have been a type 1 diabetic for 12 years and 4 years ago I had a baby and was diagnosed with Graves disease soon after her birth. I have had the radioactive iodine treatment for my thyroid because my glucose levels were so high; I have changed my insulin for the old R & NPH to the Novolog and Lantus. My glucose levels are still high we have seen a small drop in the levels going from an average of 400-600 down to 200-400 usually in the high 300 to low 400 is where we are at now. I have had T-3 &T-4 blood tests and the thyroid hormone is pretty much gone we have not started the replacement hormone yet. Now this being said I had a talk with my internal medicine doctor a couple of days ago and he wants to put me on a medication that people with type 2 diabetes use. Is this normal, I have never heard of this and was wondering if anyone else had. If anyone knows someone who has done this or what the results might be....

Cat's twitchy behavior?

and wiggling her ears like they are itching her. This also happens sometimes when she is licking her back and hind legs-- her back fur area near her tail will ripple and twitch, she will jump up, and run around, with her ears wiggling. The episodes last for about 5-10 seconds at a time, anywhere from 2-6 times a day. I have taken her to the vet twice in the last month, with no resolution. Her blood tests came back fine; the only thing was a slightly elevated thyroid level (4.1, with 4 being "high normal"). She does not have fleas or ear mites. The vet felt up and down my cat's back, but couldn't find anything wrong. The behavior continues, and it looks like my cat is in distress when it happens (as opposed to the usual "crazy cat" behavior). Any ideas about what might be wrong?...

Any Doctors birth control and thyroid?

mes a day and the only time it stops (the bleeding) is when I take another pill and it will stop for a few hours because it overlapsthe dosage and makes it a lot stonger. A couple hours after its back to tons of blood and clotting. My doctor said shes waiting for results on my thyriod, but im afraid if I take something for my thyriod, it will make me gain a lot of weight. Not to mention that if I wanted to stop bleeding all together I would probably have to take 3 or 4 birth control pills a day! I dont get it. Before birth control I never had a period. I had secondary amenorrhea. Whats going on im sooo frustrated :( :(...
