Adrenal Insufficiency?

Posted , 4 users are following.

Like many on this forum I am on meds for hypothyroidism, show normal TSH and other measures but still tired, foggy head etc.

I read somewhere that adrenal insufficiency can cause this, but didn't take it seriously, as there is a lot of conflicting advice out there!

Then yesterday I got a huge fright out driving (not my fault) and when I parked a few minutes later the tiredness and foggy head seemed to have gone away, and stayed like that for about an hour.

So that has me wondering. Did the scare make my adrenalin spike and that made the tiredness go away? Maybe I suffer from adrenalin deficiency.

Has anyone had experience with adrenalin deficiency associated with hypothyroidism? Tests? Treatment? Results?

all advice appreciated!

    Yes, totally. Adrenal deficiency accompanies can have advanced thyroid disease and have "normal" blood work. 

    I wrote a whole whole descroptin of why, but this lame webpage crashed and deleted it. I speak from personal experience, it's near impossible  to get proper adrenal testing. Every time my thyroid goes wonky, my adrenals go wonky too. Many thyroid patientsexperience adrenal exhaustion.

    I eventually bought a hormone book and treated myself withd dietary changes,  herbs and amino acids. I was shocked by how well the amino acids worked. So easy!
