Sorry me again, left out feeling cold. I have a blanket on the couch so no one else has to roast alive! Go to bed with two hot water bottles! Mostly felt in hands, and lower arms, feet and lower legs. Became worse from last spring.
Sorry to moan and groan...
Have you had any adrenal tests? 8am cortisol or ACTH stimulation test?
Do a search for Polyglandular Autoimmune Syndrome.
No I haven't, but adrenal problems have crossed my mind. I will do what you suggest and hope that the endocrinlogist do the tests next month. Thank you so much for your help. I'll let you know how it goes. xx
I forgot to say that my main symptom has been vertigo attacks. This last one was 6/06 and I was left with what can only be described as dysequalibrium. Just like you describe.
I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism after many years of high "normal" TSH levels. This has improved quite a bit on Synthroid, but I still have some fatigue in the am and dysequalibrium.
I was dx'd with Meneire's Disease in 1997 after experiencing vertigo/dysequalibrium in 1994 and 1997. This has been ruled out as of last year.
My endo will more than likely treat me for adrenal insufficiency even if the tests are normal. He said the ACTH Stim. Test misses 25% of cases.
Good luck at the endo next month and keep me posted if you remember. I don't always check in here, usually on the thyroid forum, but you can PM me if you'd like.
Yes, thank you again. Even though my tests are negative, I do feel I might have thyroid trouble, especially as with coeliac it's top of the list of other things I can be prone to. time will tell I suppose, or more thorough tests. I have my vertigo, balance problems and tinnitus, continuously. I have also suspected adrenal problems and lupus. Perhaps it's something a lot more simple (like more deficiencies), you never know, I might be lucky.
I will PM you when I find out more.
Great- let me know what you find out.
Take care Maria!
