Adrenal burnout ? Thyroid trouble

I have been under stress for years. I have a swollen thyroid, fatigue, night sweats, hot flashes, puffiness & swollen hands in the am, muscle pain, low back pain, excessive thirst, sweet & salty cravings, blood calcium 9.8MG/DL, albumin 5.2 GM/DL, TSH- 0.470, fT4-1.25. I was told my "labs look great" although I feel terrible.
Could adrenal burnout lead to hyperthyroidism? In long periods of stress does cortisol stay high and then become low due to secession of the production by the adrenals? Will addressing the adrenals take care of the low TSH? Can I order my own cortisol spit test?

Yes you could find relief in the thyroid area - if you find you do have adrenal burnout.

I would ask your doctor about getting some DHEA done with some 24 hr adrenal testing,

I am concerned about your calcium lab of 9.8. That tieters on the high end.

The symptoms you list above, is that it? Do you have any others? Acid reflex at all?

Have you looked at the parathyroid.com ist - to just read about those?

Might be well worth it if you did.
