May be of interest to some ladies, i am post menopausal and seems alot of my symptoms i just excuse as menopause but maybe with me personally it isnt all menopause - it has gone further than this.. I thought i would share my info incase other ladies are feeling the same ..
my last TSH results showed possible under active thyroid.
to be confirmed ...
so have had TSH ( thyroid re tested ) all of meaning TSH, T4 and T3
and also Adrenals, and many more tests, as lately i have feelings of constant hunger pains, even after eating .. This is a new one for me, i am not an over eater, and have a good weight, and diet ( not over weight) so lucky that way having had a long 10 year natural peri menopause and now being 19 months post menopause .( and aged almost 51) also my body is so fatigued, and i ache and need to sit down far more these days. I have to push myself lets say. And i do, then i sit and i am stiff and ache when i get up again, its crazy.

Symptoms of low cortisol
Although adrenal issues may also point to high cortisol, low cortisol, or often a combination of both.
These can also be found or exacerbated while raising natural desiccated thyroid or T3 and can occur at low doses of desiccated thyroid or T3, or waited until the patient got as high as 3 grains and more. They are in no particular order, and you can have some and not others:
Symtoms are ...
continuing hypothyroid symptoms with a high free T3
shaky hands; shakiness
higher heart rate
feeling of panic
inability to handle stress
inability to handle interactions with others
inability to focus
rage or sudden angry outbursts
emotionally hyper sensitive
feeling paranoid about people or things
exacerbated reactions to daily stress
mild to severe hypoglycemic episodes
nausea in the face of stress
taking days to recover from even minor stress
taking days to recover from a dental visit
all over body ache
clumsy (drop things, bump into things)
suddenly feel extremely hungry
low back pain
cloud-filled head (happens when this patient is due for a next cortisol dose)
coffee putting patient to sleep
vomiting even running up the slightest incline
almost passing out every time patient gets up
dark circles under my eyes
waking up in the middle of the night for several hours
difficulty falling asleep
If you have any of the above, it is highly recommended that you confirm sluggish adrenals with an adrenal saliva test or adrenal blood test, which may be good to detect if you have a pituitary problem, It’s also recommended that you try to find a doctor who will be open minded about adrenal treatment.
i am waiting all my blood tests results, and have been asked to have the Adrenal Blood test again next week, as the lab said my blood was too thick and the test could not be analysed ..
( apparently this can happen from time to time)
