thanks to some great advice on here, I started self medicating with NDT in September and have gradually increased the dose. It had made a little difference to tiredness (dropped 2 naps a week!) and aches and pains, but arriving at 3* grains a day, it seems to have uncovered some adrenal issues. My heart rate is 80-90 at rest (used to be 55-65) and I have a constant feeling of dread, like the sinking feeling you get when you find out something awful has happened. Tiredness and aches are back, but no worse than before.
Obviously I need to reduce and get cortisol re-tested, but what's the best way to do it? Stop NDT for a few days until the dread goes away, or just drop down a couple of steps. I dropped to 2.5 at the weekend, but it hasn't made any difference. Go for 2? 1.5? Stay at the lower dose or attempt to raise again, more slowly?
Any advice would be much appreciated, thanks.
*mea culpa, greygoose advised staying at 2 grains for 6 weeks and re-testing, but I listened to people on Facebook who said it should be 3. Sorry GG.
