Hi everyone! I am so excited there is a group to discuss this!
I had a stressful life and I think my adrenals may be ruined because of it. Abusive home, anorexia in middle school, massive hemorrhage during birth and also a very high heart rate during labor (They gave me an EKG after and it seemed fine)... ect
I went to my family doc and they tested the thyroid levels TSH and T4 and the came back "normal". I have been reading about how the tests can lie.
Anyways... I have an appointment with an Endo on Monday the 5th and I am going to discuss these problems with him too. But I would like to hear other's opinions also!
Here are my symptoms I have had them most of my life (as soon as I "checked out" from stress at home PTSD) They have just increased recently
Mood changes/personality changes
Tired and takes a lot to get going
hard to fall asleep
Overweight my entire life I have literally cut out all processed foods, sugar, gluten and I make EVERYTHING homemade I can't tell you the extensive diets I have been so strict about and haven't lost a pound I have kept with them for 6 months plus at least. An example is under 20 carbs a day for 6 months, if I ate more than 20, I'd gain
The most annoying syptoms are the inattentiveness, personality changes, weight gain, and joint pain.
I feel like people normally feel better than I do! I want to lose weight and feel good again! Thanks for any adivce :)
