Hello there, I just joined this forum because my doctor thinks I have adrenal problems. I have Hashi's and recently had partial Thyroidectomy (papillary carcinoma).
A while back I ordered a saliva test that came back with not only all numbers below normal range for cortisol, but also a 4.4 cortisol/DHEA ratio. I never heard back from the doctor on this so assumed things were fine even though numbers pretty low.
My one main issue is that the days I feel alright, I sometimes try to exercise very lightly. I can get through it fine, not quite the shape i used to be, but nonetheless fine. THEN that night when trying to sleep. My body feels like toxic and I cant sleep. I have like a buzzing or vibrating..all over like I said it feels toxic like internal body chemistry is off. Anyone had this or know anything in reference to this?
I have exercise and heat intollerance with tachycardia and have been wondering if it may be related to my adrenal glands and or pattassium stability in my body my body seem to be demanding more and more food with patassim in them like banana, orange juice, and now I cant threw a day with out a sports drink.
