It feels like I've been possessed by something that has hijacked my body. First I was having bouts of insomnia the day my period starts, then I rebounded from that and couldn't get enough sleep. I could sleep for 9 hours and wake up feeling exhausted. What a shitty period that was. Being a woman can just suck.
My thyroid levels checked out slightly hyper and I've adjusted my meds. I'm also 50 and have started having crazy irregular periods which means I'm still producing estrogen so I'm thinking the fluctuating levels could be partially to blame?
I am also suspecting my cortisol levels may be causing havoc as well. My stress level has been on a rollercoaster ride and have been around my husband and talk of divorce. (personally, I think I'll be happier with a divorce, but getting there is a bumpy ride).
So, what I'm wondering if anyone here has experience with adrenal stress/failure and what it was like--how was it diagnosed. I talked my doctor into letting me get a 4 hour saliva test and just finished the test today. Results will be a week or so. Appreciate any input or advice
