In my early 20s (I'm now in my late 40s) I had a very difficult experience which led to anxiety, panic attacks and depression. This went on for years and I eventually had the courage to seek treatment and along with therapy and learning to meditate, etc i got back on an even keel . I know my adrenals were knocked for six.
When I was diagnosed two years ago with significant antibodies and a mildly elevated tsh I was put on thyroxine and told that my cortisol levels were good. So I have always assumed my adrenals were ok. Fast fward to now. My mum died last year and this year started with a bang when my beloved dog had a series of seizures which scared the life out of me. I joke about him being like a child to me but I haven't been able to have kids so he is the nearest thing I have. Along with money worries its fair to say that things have got on top of me a bit. I'm sitting here with tears running down my face and its quite a relief to write it all down. My question is this? What can we do for our shattered adrenals other than rest, eat well, take good supplements, meditate, etc. I can't seem to find any other info. Am I missing something? I take 4000 ius of vit d, b complex, c, a multi with selenium and an iron supplement. I'm going to ask to have my bloods done again (last oct tsh was at 2.45 but I felt ok). Do I need more thyroxine or to somehow heal my adrenals more? I've started to have an odd inner tremour feeling at night which has only come on since this latest event with my dog and am sure its adrenals.
I'm sorry this a long question with lots of little questions in it. Thank you to anyone who has advice.
