Can low cortisol cause a detached feeling?

I have Hashimoto's disease and been treated for it with thyroid meds - I have a terrible spaced out, detached feeling in my head that the thyroid meds seem to make worse.

I've also been diagnosed with adrenal fatigue but I'm wondering if low cortisol is causing this rather than low thyroid?

Thanks

What sort of adrenal testing did you have and what sort of adrenal replacement treatment are you taking?

I am also hypothyroid for which I take iodine. I am also suffering from adrenal fatigue, confirmed by saliva and urine tests. I take 1000 mg. of vitamin B5 daily and it has helped enormously. Ask your doctor if this is suitable for you. Also look up adrenal fatigue on the internet. This is where I found the connection with B5.

Yes, I believe adrenal fatigue causes apathy. I had a thyroidectomy (so now hypo) and also adrenal fatigue...I feel that apathy is more due to adrenal fatigue than hypo for me. It's like I can't be bothered with anything... doing things I would normally enjoy. The fatigue doesn't help either!
