Happy to be a mommy and teacher to D , born 1-17-06 via and A , born 10-6-08 with a
It's time for another adrenal test and I was wondering what all I have
to stop taking and how long before I can test? I take isocort,
iodoral, thyroid, multi's, calcium, magnesium, b complex, probiotics,
cod liver oil, herbal tincture for stress and going to sleep, vitamin
c, iron and some others.
Also, I know I asked this before but I still can't seem to understand
it. What is the real difference in a 4 tube test and 2 tube. My ND
says that a 2 tube is just as good, and I know people here say to use
the 4 tube, but why? What can I say to my doc in defense of the 4 tube
I was also wondering about pregnancy. How long before I wanna get pregnant do I need to stop the isocort and thyroid, and what can I do during pregnancy to help??
1. Waking up feeling EXTREMELY sleep deprived. Even after
8 or close to 8 hours of sleep i can hardly get out of bed
because i feel like ive hardly slept at all. If I get less than
8 hours omg i swear i will die, it literally feels like i will die.
3. Noise sensitivity, and sometimes wake up in the middle of
the night, if I am particularly unlucky ( esp around my cycle)
It will take me hours to fall back asleep. This absolutely
I have no money right now and cannot afford to see a professional.
Sadly cannot afford sleep study, the best i could do is get
the salivary panel by Canary club, but i cant even do that
I know Drenamin is a good supplement for severe AF. I just
have not been taking much of it, maybe 1 pill, or 2 here and
there. I know it is important i know how low it is, but i simply
have no money
I do have access to some good supplements but I didnt realize
it was my adrenals until recently! I know the lyme plays a part
in all this and is probably stressing them out more.
I do have some Mannatonin ( melatonin/valerian supp) for
sleeping, though i have been trying NOT to take it.
The sleep distruption gets worse around ovulation, is
there a reason for that?
One of the main symptoms of Adrenal Burnout is waking up
after 8-10 hours of sleep feeling like you hardly slept.
Gawd this is awful, does it get better? I'll probably have
a harder time treating them cuz i have lyme....crap.
Both Thyroid and Armour are replacing what your body needs. If you don't take HC during pregnancy then you will take cortisol away from your baby.
Metasequoia... just read your initial post - I've missed this thread somehow - and I'm really curious, especially about the cutting out caffeine and eating lots of salt angle. I CRAVE lots of salt. I heavily salt everything (I use "RealSalt"). You'd think I didn't taste it. I've always wondered if I'm self-medicating. I drink tons of coffee too and have been wondering how this is impacting me. I also notice I'm rarely thirsty.
Subbing and I'm going to try to catch-up on this thread.
(p.s., let's get together! You can tell me how to cut out coffee and I can tell you how to avoid grains! What a fun playgroup! Salt water and hard-boiled eggs for everyone! Wheee!) lol
Is it the sodium or the other minerals? Why is salt so important? Is it a correct assumption that you can eat as much as you want and it won't be hard on your kidneys & adrenals?
