I was just wondering what your opinions were on this.
I saw Dr P a couple of weeks ago, he suggested my adrenals were a problem and I was suffering from Adrenal and Thyroid Insufficiency. He said I had enough Thyroid hormone in my body but wasn't using it properly.
I have to say I've been feeling better recently. i'm still taking 25mg of Levo and still have a few hypo symptoms, dry skin, irregular periods, muscle/joint pain and inability to lose weight but on the whole I don't feel as sluggish or as bad as I did a while back.
So I started adrenavive and over the last couple of days I've added in Metavive as suggested by Dr P.
I only took half a capsule of the 15mg of metavive as I wasn't sure how I would react.
The last two days I have felt a prickly sensation on my skin, almost like sunburn but I haven't been in the sun. I have also had a nightmare getting to sleep I just don't feel tired.
The thing is my periods are all over the place, I'm also having hot flushes. I did mention this to Dr P but he thought I was too young 44 to be having menopause and it was more than likely adrenal/thyroid issues causing this.
I had a hormone test last year for menopause etc and all came back ok apart from lowish hormone levels but I know it doesn't always show on blood tests if you are menopausal.
I'm just thinking all these things like, joint/muscle pain, dry skin, periods etc are menopause symptoms as well.
I don't know whether it's the metavive causing the skin/sleep issues or menopause.
I've also managed to join the gym and starting swimming a bit so I think that is helping with my energy levels.
But this morning on 6 hours sleep I feel so awake so not quite sure whether I'm not tolerating the Metavive too well or if I'm not giving it a chance.
Any thoughts appreciated.
