Hi there, as we are building a house, my body is very stressed, I normally have been on 5mg of hydrocortisone, and have tried another five, but i am not finding that enough, is it ok to take another 5mg mid afternoon, a total of 15mg, not sleeping well. My period didn t arrive either, that tells me, even though I am on natural thyroid, that is suffering with my anxiety also. Many thanks, Eva

Hi, I m 2-3 weeks pregnant and I am very stressed due final exams at university. I ve been suffering from generalized itching, tingling and crawling sensations on my skin everywhere in my body randomly spread. The feelings get worse after meals and at night. I can t sleep properly because I wake up scratching myself. There few random rashes that pop up all around the body and they are very itchy. Could it be related to the pregnancy or stress? Should I worry about it??

I have been battling depression, anxiety, stress, and irritability for years. I recently got pregnant, got married, graduated from nursing school, and got a job. Oh yes, and we built a house. WOAH! Im exhausted just writing about it. I have been unsuccessfully treated with several antidepressants and the more research I do I find a common correlation between thyroid issues and the symptoms I have described above. My mother has hypothyroidism and take synthroid every day. I am beginning to wonder if my medication is not doing its job is because we have not considered a thyroid problem... However, I have also read that you have to be specific when asking for thyroid levels to be drawn.

My mother is 89 and on hospice care for advanced A.D. she has developed, over past year, an indentation on the top of her skull running left to right about three inches back from the front of the scalp. She has several large nodules on her thyroid, but her endocrinologist declined to pursue with needle biopsy or surgery due to her age and advanced disease, A.D. what do you think could be the cause of the changes in the top of her skull, indentation. She also has had significant loss in brain mass in past 12 years per MRI studies ren years apart.

My psychiatrist added 25 mcg of liothyronine, I started taking it Thursday 3-19, to be increased to 50 mcg after one week to augment my depression that has been resistent to other antidepressants. I don t have enough energy to leave the sofa. I also have panic disorder. I have gained about 35 lbs. in about nine months. I m nervous after reading some of the reviews. Should I be. How long can I safely take this medication. Will my thyroid stop producing the harmone naturally if I stay on this medication? When I come off will my thyroid be normal? I have very high hopes that this will increase my metabolism and give me the energy I m lacking and aid in my depression. Thank you
