    Re: thyroid v. adrenals. v. menopause

    My research is the same softcrush...adrenals first. The thing is, most people who take hyrdo (is this the same as cortef) start to feel something right away...I didn't. I had 1 day about 3 weeks into taking hydro where I had a good reaction the rest was same old same old. This was during a 2.5 months time when I STOPPED taking armour. The armour(as well as other thyroid meds) were making me sooooo sick and I had enough. Someone said I should try something stronger...I'm open to this but don't know if or when I will ever get my hands on the stuff.

    I also have growth hormone deficiency and I'm trying to see where this fits in. I've heard 2 opposing views on this and I can't find anything on the net.

    On top of that I have low estrogen. My doc (ex doc) says my bad reation to armour was because I was going into menopause. Now I've heard of a bad reaction to armour because of adreanl problems but not because of menopause...have you. Do you know about armour causing hot flashes??? Sounds like a bunch of bull.

    In regards to the bc pill. I was on it for 20 years (minus time out to have a kid). I started having all of my thryodid and other problems about 5 months after going off of the pill. Or I should say my problems really became noticable after going off of the pill (I think I've had most of these problems most of my life).

    I have yet to find a doc (I've been to somewhere between 15 and 20 already in 2 years) that is even remotely aware of the thyroid adrenal connection. I could write a VERY thick book just on the stupidity I have encountered from docs...believe me it would blow you mind!!!

    I'm waiting for some copies of my blood work files from ex doc. Then I can post these and maybe get some answers. I asked my ex doc to also test progesterone. I was told this had nothing to do with anything. This doc happens to be the number 1 person in charge of the endo department at a world famous (so they say) clinic that just does diagnostic.

    I'm still trying just to find a good doc....gofferhead gave me some good leads. I did find one that said I should try hydro and also growth hormone but he said it like it's the latest trend. He also said my bad reaction to armour was because I was hypo for soooo long. He didn't mention the thyroid adrenal connection.

    Sorry, I could moan and complain for hours. I'm sure on most of the places I've have posted that's exactly what people are saying about me.
