Hi, I am 54 year old woman from Finland. I was happy to find this site, where I can actually ask questions. (My native language is not English, I hope you understand me) I have been suffering since last March from extreme anxiety at first and was given antidepressants for it which made me feel even more anxious, sleepless and eventually depressed. In August I started having more physical symptoms, flu like pains all over the body, dizziness, palpitation and started to feel weaker as well. I got appointment with a doctor who prescribed me hydrocortisone for Adrenal fatigue (I did have salivat testing that showed low cortisol levels). Anyway, the anxiety went away, but the fatigue was still there and the other symptoms as well, including depression. On that saliva testing estrogen dominance was also found, but the doctor didnt say anything about it. Before Christmas the doctor gave me some Natural Thyroid hormone to try, but after taking it for 5 days (very little dose), I ended up in emergency room for high blood pressure and even deeper fatigue and depression.. Now I have appointment to a gynecologist and wishing to get some help from there.. Any ideas what could help my condition.. Thank you so much for reading and I am happy to receive any suggestions you might have..
