Seems that when people talk about thyroids, the words cortisol and adrenals frequently pops into the conversation. I don't know much about them, but do know that our cortisol levels are higher in the morning, and get lower as the day goes by? The reason I ask is that I always feel lousy when I get up in the morning, and by afternoon, I'm a little better, but still don't feel well. After dark, I usually feel REAL good, then come morning it starts all over again. I'm also fighting hyperthyroidism, so wonder if this has something to do with how I feel as the day goes by?
My doc had initially ordered a TSH test for me Friday, but I left a note at the clinic today requesting a Free T3 and Free T4 also, and she called me and said "no problem, I'll order the full panel"...WHOA!!!!!! Can't believe it!
