I am still doing lots of research and reading on the site, but recall reading somewhere about needing optimal adrenal function for good thyroid treatment.
I have had many traumatic Personal life Life changing events over the last 10 years in fact going from one crisis to the next until it felt like my body as in ability to cope with stress was greatly impaired. It now appears that I cannot cope with any minor stress without my system taking a major dive physically (chronic pain,severe gastric problems) as well as cognitively.
The under active thyroid began in 2006 alongside the impaired stress control and the chronic pain. Possibly there is a link ?
What I am basically .asking is for any help and advice on how to diagnose and treat. without an NHS input. (I have a terrible relationship with my GP Practice) and want to start this journey doing things in the correct order.
