How do I know my hypothalamus is working?

I lost my sleep 20 years ago. I simply cannot sleep. According to doctors I am bipolar and they gave me SEROQUEL and I can sleep with it. But my problem is my perennial insomnia. That is, I cannot sleep AT ALL unles I take SEROQUEL.

My blood tests say THyroid is fine. But I saw a video of Dr. Hotze saying that blood tests didn’t detect exactly the thyroid functioning. I asked my doctor for a ANITHYROID ANTIBODIES. I also feel a pressure inside my throat as if I had a peace of bread stuck in it, I feel it since I am a little boy (now I am 43). I have told many doctors about that feeling but they never cared all these years.

I hit my head when I was 17 years old. It was a big hit against the floor. I jump on a mattress that was on the floor and I thought it was going to be very protective but I ended up hitting the floor. It would have worlked if I had jumped on two mattress, but on one it was bad. I hit my head so hard from the forehead that I couldn’t breath for 15 seconds and needed a minute to come back into normal thinking. Maybe I damaged my hypothalamus.

The question is: What kind of doctor can check my hypothalamus?

Please give me some advice. Not sleeping is really ugly. Even with the SEROQUEL I can sleep all night long but it is not natural rest. My life is so misserable emotionally because of that. As i stated before, I am not bipolar by nature, it is because not sleeping can make anybody crazy.

I DO NOT SLEEP AT ALL. No matter what I do I have perennial insomnia. Please don’t tell me to listen to the sea or to count to 100 or to do yoga. I CANNOT SLEEP. Please help me.

Since I lived in the USA I may have FLUORIDE intoxication. I bought the Iodine to decalcify the Pineal Gland. I read that can cause insomnia.

The other question? Whay kind of doctor can help me with the pineal gland?

Thanks in advance. Best regards from Spain.
I do sleep thanks to the pills. If I don’t take them I simply don’t sleep. Believe me, if I dont take them I just don’t sleep, believe me, no sleep at all unless I take something.

call a compounding pharmacy and ask them what doctors in your area test and balance hormones……they should be able to help you……
i would nt be taking all that iodine though.
and endocrinilogist can test you but have limited treatments


Only a scan (forget but I think it’s the MRI) can tell the shape of your hypothalamus and also an ACTH provocation test. If you want these you have to go see an endocrinologist. I have severe hypoadrenalism and I have refused those tests as they make you drink a highly toxic metal (gadolinium) which will further deplete your adrenals/system. (I have tested + for high gadolinium toxicity already). I take DHEA in the am and I find when I take the right dosage that as the hours go by, I cannot resist sleep at night. I’ve been an insomniac… Read more »


Same boat man, always tired, never sleepy. If i have a cup of coffee to wake up, I can expect to stay awake for at least 24 hours. No way around it. Going in for my bloodwork soon. GL to you man, I totally sympathize. Does the seroquel help at all? I’ve been taking codeine and that usually does the trick for me. The sleep feels natural but I’m still asleep when i wake up.
