Hi there..
I have been going to my doctor to get some blood work taken and to investigate my constant fatigue... I never even thought of adrenal fatigue as the culprit, but the more I read the symptoms the more it sounds like a possibility.

I was diagnosed Hypothyroid in 2003 and have taken medication daily ever since... my levels have been consistant for years, I was generally feeling 100% better since 2006. Lately my fatigue has been so extreme it reminded me of those Hypo days before I got medication... however all my tests for my thyroid are all perfect, including my free T4, T3, etc. I have no problem losing weight, in fact I have lost 15 lbs in 3 months due to stress (I am already thin and wasn't trying to lose).

My symptoms that I currently experience are EXTREME daily fatigue... I am on a consistent schedule, working dayshift, in bed before midnight and up at the same time.. I sleep like A LOG... don't wake up.. I sleep by myself as my fiance works midnights... yet when I wake up I have to crawl out of bed, I feel like DEATH........ I feel like I didn't sleep..

I have been having alot of muscle weakness and aches lately... I have no energy for the gym, so I haven't been going.. I have been going through a tonne of stress/depression in the last 4 months... I've been eating alot less, therefore losing the 15lbs.. I look completely ill... dark circles.. skin looks pale and sunken.. I have no energy and I just don't even feel like doing anything besides sleeping. My whole energy has changed.. don't feel happy or like my usual self..

I have been very dizzy lately.. standing up first thing in the morning, or at certain periods of time but I always blamed that on not eating enough?
I also didn't get my last menstrual period.. it was so light almost non-existent only lasting for a day..

I know I can't be diagnosed on here (I am seeing my doctor next week) but if all my vitamins, b12, thyroid and everything comes back normal, what tests can I ask her to test to suggest possible adrenal fatigue?

I have never had my cortisol levels or any type of hormones tested before so I am not sure what to ask for...

Thanks so much..:)
