Hi folks. I read somewhere (I think it might have been Stop the Thyroid Madness) that if your heart goes like the clappers on thyroid meds it's wise to sort out any adrenal problems first. Having just started on NDT I've had to stop (even though head and energy were much better) because I felt I was about to have a heart attack.
I've been looking at Nutri-Meds:
but not sure which of these adrenal supplements I should try (if any). Any advice?
I had a blood test for cortisol and it was well within range, so I asked both my GP and the private (recommended) endo if they would pay any attention if I did saliva tests, but they both said I could do it if I liked but they would go by the blood test result.
I have been under unbearable stress with family issues, particularly within the last six years (victim of massive fraud, lost business and home, father's death, divorce, and both mother and son with severe mental health problems, in particular mother who has bullied and disinherited me even though I'm her only child... you get the picture), and my therapist is sure that my adrenals must be flaked out...
My heart (in my view) has been very worrying for several years. I often have pain and 'judders' which last for a few seconds and the slightest exercise (eg climbing stairs, or getting up in the night) makes me feel like I've just run a marathon. Docs just check RESTING heartbeat and have given ECG but it's always fine.
I don't want to go back to the doc with this as I've already got him to treat me with B12 when results were 'normal' and he knows I've been to see an endo when my thyroid was 'normal' and now I'd be complaining about my heart when that's 'normal' too. He must think I'm a hypochondriac attention-seeker (I'm not!).
