hi everyone I have hashimotos and PA currently on T3 and T4.
feeling weak and extremely tired. My endo sent me for a short synathen test , which revealed low cortisol. He has sent me for 2 more tests short synathen antibodies and ACTH test. Which came back abnormal. I’m to get the results shortly through the post. I’ve been to see him today and he’s diagnosed adrenal fatigue. Addison’s disease and started me on 10 hydrocortisone in the morning and 5 at 3pm.
He’s told me it’s very rare and I will be on this steroid medication for life. I’m not happy about taking steroids but just want to feel better.
Has anyone else got hashimotos and Addison’s? Any advice about what to expect from the steroids greatly appreciated
