Default Re: CBT for Insomnia

Certainly, a physical to rule out medical causes is always a good idea. Thyroid problems can mimic anxiety or depression or can play a role in anxiety or depression. Side-effects of medication can also play a role.

If treatment for her elevated thyroid level took care of the insomnia, then maybe it was a purely medical problem. That certainly isn't the case with most insomnia.
