Wish everyone a Happy Easter! Now I can be my miserable, sleep deprived, fat self!! I cannot sleep. That's it! I've been on zoplicone for 6 yrs. Bipolar for 20 yrs. Diagnosed with hypothroydism for 2mths, with high cortisol level. I get into bed at 11.30pm/midnight. Today, or is it yesterday, I fell asleep at 11.30am. Awake at 3pm. Sometimes it's 6pm before I wake. I have no life. I'm now agoraphobic! There. I've said it!! Today I opened my bathroom window & nearly passed out, because I hadn't looked outside for 2 wks. I'm 40 in November. This isn't living. My Endo says that my hormone probs are due to my bipolar. I had a complete hysterectomy 3yrs ago, now on HRT tabs. My GP blood test results were
(just showing the ones with a * by them).
ALT 41. iu/L 0 - 40
C-reactive 17. mg/L 0 - 10
TSH 5.2 miu/L 0.3 - 4.2
Free T4. 10.5 pmol/L 12 - 22
Cortisol 1033. nmol/L 170 - 535
Following cortisol reading after overnight Dexamethasone (1mg) suppression test
Cortisol 72. nmol/L 170 - 535
(It's noted that results do not show complete suppression).
BTY!!!! GP has me on 25mg Levo. Endo said not to change until I see him in JUNE!
Any help would be amazing. I know I have bipolar, but the last 6mths has me really questioning my sanity.
Much love, Charlotte.
