Hi, I am having a lot going on. I have low thyroid and I take levothyroin. I also have chronic epstein barr. I am having adrenal problems. I have been crashing after any exertion and bad. I am going to see an infectious disease dr on the 26th. I am going to call my dr in am and ask for thyroid antibody test and also cortisol test. I feel like my thyroid and adrenals are both not functioning well. I wanted to know if others have found a balance for their chronic fatigue? redface

MY adrenal tests came back and revealed high cortisol, and low DHEA. I am now taking DHEA supplements and will have all this rechecked in a month.  Critical to have these in balance as adrenal fatigue plays a role in CFS.  I have seen a bit of improvement with the DHEA supplementation. Would recomend trying it.
