Apologies for posting twice, decided to start a new thread
Thankyou everyone for your advice
I m picking up results this afternoon. (It seems the blood test I was told was normal was not a Thyroid test), had test Monday and saw GP for sick note. I explained the symptoms I am having. The surgery rang me on Tuesday, they want me to reduce my Levothyroxine to 100mcg, GP thinks it will help me sleep..( without blood results being back)
I feel this is a very low dose as I have no Thyroid, and as I explained here and to Dr, I don't feel over medicated. It's just occurred to me that it could be my adrenals. Looking online everything fits, especially having had years of Graves disease. I want to raise the subject with GP but am aware of how black and white the medical profession see it. If I don't have overt Addison's or Cushing, I'm not sure where to start.
Adrenal problems occurred to me because in trying to describe how I feel I said I feel driven by adrenaline. Sort of compelled to keep moving. Get up after a very brief sleep. So exhausted. But unable to rest at all.
