Following on from my previous post is it possible to have adrenal fatigue at some points during the month and be ok at other times? I am thinking specifically before a period and around ovulation. I have taken numerous saliva tests over the years and they have shown while slightly low in am and slightly higher in pm on the whole not too bad. According to Janie of STTM no HC required.
Most of my problems are in the first couple weeks of my cycle until after ovulation. Then I feel quite good with less digestive problems, less anxiety etc. ( still lots of hypo symptoms and fatigue but I can manage if I pace myself ).
I'm thinking the progesterone I produce in the latter weeks may be helping me with my cortisol needs. But just before your period begins doesn't the progesterone drop?? Is this why I am having psycho woman symptoms in the few days before my period? Does this mean that I have low adrenals at this time or is it just PMS?
Taking progesterone cream wouldnt help here would it as you have to stop it prior to period don't you? Does anyone have any ideas as to what is going on here? Will fixing my thyroid help this? What can I do to help these symptoms (and to avoid being sent to a mental health unit as I feel one step away from this! )
