Impending doom - symptom of Hypothyroidism or Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome?

According to Dr Lam, a feeling of impending doom can be a symptom of Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome, but I believe it can also be a symptom of Hypothyroidism. How can I know which to attribute the symptom to?

By taking your temperature three times a day and plotting the days average on a graph. Works brilliantly. drrind.com/therapies/metabo...

Thank you galathea, I believe I do have both, but does the impending doom symptom come from both?

Hahaha. I have always felt impending doom, even as a child. Only went away when watching TV and playing sports. Now only watch TV to alleviate.

I wish I only felt it then, but it does double in intensity on those occasions : )

The Adrenal Glands, like everything else, need thyroid hormones to function properly. So the symptom can come from both.

I have a terrible feeling of impending doom some days... I believe it's more related to the Adrenals. My adrenal glands are beyond fatigued...
