Does Stress cause increased thyroid symptoms?
I have Hashi's and I'm on Armour for about 5 months now.  I just moved and it put a lot of stess on me.  Now the Brain Fog is back, and I'm so tired that I can't get up in the morning, and I want to sleep all day long.  I'm having probems falling asleep.  I have no energy and I don't know if I need anit-depressants or to see an Endo.  Doctor's always assume it's depression, but I'm tired all the time and the brain fog isn't really depression symptoms are they?
I feel like my body is going back and forth with feeling okay and feeling like ****.  Also, I can't get a doc to test my Adrenals.(they say it's not FDA approved)  I wouldn't know how to treat it if I ordered a saliva test anyway.
I would appriciate your advice.

Stress can worsen all these symptoms and may worsen thyroid conditions.
Would see an endocrinologist to make sure your treatment is optimal.
