So I went back to the nasty endo today. I realize now he’s a really old guy, and just set in his ways. For instance, when I told him I felt much better during the day on the 50 mcg of thryoid but that it gave me bad insomnia, he shook his head and said it “couldn’t” be from the thyroid because that was a hyperthyroid symptom, and you can’t be hyper and hypo at the same time.
Even though you can. Because the doctor who first told he thought something was off told me I had symptoms of both, and that you can have both at the same time if you have adrenal fatigue. (Oddly enough, I’d had a rather compelling dream many years ago where I heard a voice telling me, “You have adrenal exhaustion.” I’d never even heard of it, tried to look it up and couldn’t find anything. So I put it out of my head.)
Anyway, this is a very complicated condition and I don’t have the mental focus to untangle it all. Hopefully my primary care doctor will do that for me — at least, as long as I still have medical insurance. I get really stressed out, worrying about making that insurance payment every month.
