For anybody not familiar with my circumstances - I had a full blood count last summer because of feeling *extremely* tired, but my thyroid came back in the normal range (2.67). In Jan, I did a saliva test to check my adrenals, which showed I am in the resistance stage of Adrenal fatigue - with my DHEA low, and cortisol levels low in the morning. A few weeks ago, I did another private urine test to check my thyroid, which showed my T3 low and T4 normal.
After much deliberation, I took my results along to my doctor last week - and he didn't mention adrenal fatigue at all (neither did I, as I wanted to see if he knew about it himself first!), and he suggested I had a blood test (which I had early this morning) to check my morning levels of cortisol. He wants to check for Addisons Disease (or rule out anyway as I'm fairly convinced it's not that!) and also check my TSH levels again He did say he understood that some people within the 'normal' range sometimes needed thyroid medication - so at least that's a good start. However - I'm not entirely convinced that if he prescribes Thyroxin (which is what the nurse said they use this morn) - it's a good idea to take it with weak adrenals? I'm thinking as well, that he may prescribe a low dose hydrocortisone too - again, I'm really not sure this is wise right now?? Or ever!? I've read both thyroid meds and steroids are not a good thing when adrenals are weak, so to be honest - I'm not sure what I'm really expecting from my doctor. I was *hoping* he'd know about Adrenal Fatigue, but I knew that was a long shot lol.
Can anybody advise on how I should proceed? I have my next appoint on the 10th. Do I just see what he says, and if he prescribes me anything - I don't HAVE to take it right?!
