I had thyroid cancer at age 18 and elevated thyroglobulin at age 36 which meant a radioactive iodine treatment and then an ovary removed at age 45 - I know have adrenal fatigue and feel totally spent all the time.

Hi boomer,
I wanted to let you know that I answered your question here: http://www.empowher.com/community/ask/are-there-any-thyroid-cancer-survivors-out-there-now-have-adrenal-fatigue.

There is also many women who have discussed chronic fatigue syndrome, and I am wondering if you have discussed this as a possibility with your doctor (versus adrenal fatigue). In the above response, I mentioned that there is not really a diagnosis of "adrenal fatigue", but there is a diagnosis of "adrenal insufficiency". I'm wondering if you have had blood tests conducted to check your levels?

Here is one discussion that you may find helpful as well: Why am I so tired all the time
