Hi all, I'm 32yrs old and have 5yr old twins and a 2yr old. Since I had my youngest I've been very unwell. I was diagnosed shortly after his birth with underactive thyroid and take daily levo thyroxine. Still don't feel at all well even with adjusting dose etc. When he was 3 months old I went totally deaf in my left ear. I was diagnosed with sudden sensorial hearing loss (no cause basically) and its never come back. I also suffer with repeated bouts of extreme dizzyness, nausea, vomiting etc. This was roughly monthly but its definitely getting worse and is much more frequent now. I was diagnosed with meniers disease. Also have poly cystic ovaries, very irregular or non existent periods. Was referred to an endocrinologist who did blood tests as he felt my symptoms weren't to do with the underactive thyroid and felt that was well controlled. My 9am cortisol has come back at 193nmol/l and hes said I need a synacthen test. Iive now googled this and am scared I might have Addisons disease. I have nearly all the symptoms. I'm also wondering do you think the very severe vertigo, headache, vomiting episodes could be to do with addisons and not meniers? In addisons do you have bouts like this and then recover on your own? I literally feel so so ill for 24-48 hrs and then feel better... Could that happen with addisons or would you die without help?
Does my cortisol seem bad or could it be OK/something else making that low?
Thank you for any ideas as I'm very scared after doing too much googling. Should of just waited for the test! Thanks
