45 years on t4, most of those overmedicated. I have for past few years suffered with extreme fatigue, have explored and improved low vit D, low B12 and tried to reducce T4 to reduce my rt3 I had. Some of this with advice from this great community. All these adjustments have made improvements to my fatigue but only lasted temporarily. I felt my gp did not believe the extent of my fatigue so was shocked to receive a call from him a few days ago telling me he had had a ureka moment when reading a new research paper and immediately felt he was reading about me. "I want your cortisol tested for addisons he said" ..we have explored that verbally before but as I don't have auto immune problems or any classic symptoms and except the fatigue the idea was disregarded.
It seems no with his reading that he believes my problem is addisons secondary with the problem coming from my pituartary not functioning well..........I've researched it and so happy to say I have all those symptom.
The blood test is Tuesday, wish me luck as I am so hoping I have it and when treated can stay awake longer than my usual 6 hours a day.
Looking forward 🤞😀
