Hi, I desperately need some advice on adrenals.
Before I started Cytomel I was suspicious about my adrenals. Simple blood tests back then showed this results:
DHEA-S 8,2 (1,6 - 8,8)
Cortisol at 10am 430,6 (165,6 - 507,8)
I was on Cytomel for 1,5 month now. Improvements are noticed in power in body, body temperature, cycle, depression less often.
But a new bunch of symptoms appeared: headache, night terrors, sleepiness almost narcoleptic-like, energy problem has shifted to a different time of the day sort of. And pain and awful numbness in the lower back and under shoulder blades. Stress resistance is 0. I also passed a blood clot in my urine, it was a difficult experience for my body to pass it.
24 hour saliva test gave these results: please see the attached picture.
I am so confused.
What test can be done more to understand a real problem of adrenals?
Can Cytomel make adrenals work worse or even be damaged by it?
Or should I up the dosage? (My fresh thyroid tests will be ready in a couple of days)
Is liver detox a good idea, milk thistle?
According to this test my adrenal health is so bad... and I do feel very bad.
I am on a Paleo diet. Should I change it, eat more carbs?
Is there anything to help to stop this numbness and pain at home?
For now the only idea is to get to my endo in the hospital , and then additionally to choose a new functional doctor. But I have to be in control of next steps, more information is required.
Please, be so kind, give any recommendations on what to begin with. I will look into them with all my appreciation.
