Hi, new here and a bit confused by the results of a recent lab test.
It said that it was all in the normal range and it was (some were low normal though). I also have been diagnosed with very low cortisol in an adrenal profile that I had done earlier in the year.
I'm just surprised that my numbers would be ok given how low my cortisol levels are. I have some symptoms off an under active thyroid but not all, including weight gain, fatigue, cold extremities, aching muscles and joints, brain fog. In the past I have attributed them (and others) to menopause and sleep apnea, but autoimmune disorders also run in one side of my family, so this seemed like a reasonable thing to look into.
I won't lie and say I always eat well; I don't, but I do try to exercise within the limits of what my exhaustion and pain allow. I'm not pinning all my hopes on a hypothyroid diagnose, but if it that's what it is, it would be great to feel better. It's been a long time.
Any idea where I should go with this next? I am willing to self medicate. Any advice is more than welcome!
