Cortisol

Morning everyone - this is the first time i have wrote anything on here but come on regularly, i suffer with anxiety/panic attacks on a daily basis and have done for 12/13 years. I have had major stress since i was 25 and i think that and having thyroid problems is the cause.

I have hypothyroidism and this also causes anxiety, i was wondering if any of you have every thought of having a saliva test done to see what state your adrenals are in, i have and it shows that i have adrenal insufficiency mine is low in the morning and not too bad in the evening (this is when i feel a little better evening time) i also suffer with balance (vertigo like symptoms) sorry if this sounds all jumbled up but maybe its something for you to think about xx
