Could these symptoms be adrenal related?

I have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism for many years.  However, after my father passed away 4 years ago, my amount of synthroid has been increased 3 times.  I am presently at a dosage of 175mcg and am now being bumped up again.  My latest TSH on 3/10/09 I was told was 0.019, my T3 was 1.44 and my T4 was 1.2.  These numbers of course mean nothing to me except they don't fall anywhere within the normal range of what I've seen via the internet.   My symptoms, that have worsened tremendously over the past few weeks are: severe fatigue (I could sleep for 12 hours a night and still be tired), dry/itchy skin and scalp, bad mood swings, anxiety, weight gain (watching what I eat), hoarse voice, constipation, interrupted sleep, dry eyes, ringing in the ears has worsened and overall not feeling well at all.  A mess (I know)!  I am going to see an Endocronologist on 3/13/09 hoping for some answers.  Can you tell me if this sounds like something more than just a thyroid problem so I won't be totally shocked, and maybe I will know more of what to ask when I'm there?  Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated; I'm scared to death!!

Hi

Adrenal fatigue can go hand in hand with hypothyroidism - especially if you have been left  in a low thyroid function for a long period of time. It sounds like since they increase your thyroid medication this could definately be your situation.

You can briefly look over this site
http://www.drmurphreestore.com/adrenalfatigue.html

and get an idea about symptoms on adrenal burnout and fatigue - but you really need testing on the pitutiary and adrenals to know anything for sure.
