I was diagnosed with elevated TSH so started treatment with Thyroxin. Although tiredness was always there. I can’t manage stress properly. I get angry or start crying under stress. Is there possibility that I have adrenal insufficiency but I am getting wrong treatment assuming it’s a sub clinical hypothyroidism?
It could be the thyroid itself... I found this on a website...
"Common mental and emotional symptoms of hypothyroidism can include:
* A feeling of mental fogginess and slowed thinking
* Loss of motivation and enthusiasm
* Difficulty with short- and long-term memory
* A decline in analytical ability and comprehension
* Hopelessness and depression
* Paranoid thought patterns
* In severe cases, confusion and disorientation"
Do you have other symptoms of adrenal issues such as skin, or any testing of adrenals?
Sorry you are having a bad time. For me , I too had subclinical hypothryoidism. I started treatment and my anxiety/stress level really increased- something I have never had an issue with previously. I have read treating thyroid with unresolved/untreated adrenals can cause this problem. I have just started adrenal treatment and slowly starting to feel better.
Anyone else out there have any info on this idea???
I also have a thyroid problem and it is not being controlled with the medication. I go back to the Dr. today but also have a lot of symptoms of adrenal fatigue. I was just wondering what you are taking for your adrenal treatment. My Herbalist put me on some natural adrenal support vitamins and I also made an appt. to see the Endriconologist to get the T3 & T 4 checked as my Dr. will probably just want to up the Levothyroixine which causes bone loss and I can't afford anymore bone loss. thanks Lorry
