I decided to see one of the doctors on the list from thyroid uk, as I've been on thyroxine for a year or so and feel pretty good but not great. He did a range of tests and it turns out that whilst my blood levels of TSH, t4 and t3 are fine, thee is very little in my tissues. The reason is flat adrenals, diagnosed by 24 hour saliva cortisol test and cortisol blood test. I've not got to have a short something or other test to rule out addisons, then start some treatment to support the adrenals.
Although I'm pleased to know what's going and relieved there's a reason for not feeling quite right, I'm flippin' sick and tired of there being something wrong with me. Really fed up of having to think about it at all. I just want to function normally for a bit and think about other things.
He anyone successfully treated their adrenals? How long does it take? Is anyone back to their 'old' selves? All stories welcome, but preferably not ones that will make me feel worse!!
