    I got my thyroid ultra sound back and my scan shows that my throid is working . My intregative dr wants to work on my adrenals she said that fibro patients have adrenal problems and I have alot of symptoms . Just started Thursday on .05 mg cortef but not back on thyroid meds . So far my headaches are some better but would love to go back on thyroid med2 it did help with energy and mood. Should I just wait for 2 months or call my dr 2 see if she will let me get back on it ????? Thank you cricket

    I wouldn't wait 2 months - tell your doctor now that you felt better while on the thyroid. Hopefully she'll get you back on it.

    Adrenals are important too - I never took cortef. My chiro gave me adrenal glandular products from Standard Process (like Jaminhealth) which worked great. They really helped me a lot, and I think are safer than Cortef. Also a good B vitamin complex and extra pantothenic acid are very important for the adrenals.

    Good luck -
