Endocrinology Questions? Ask an Endicrinologist for Answers ASAP
My partner has a continuous "fight, flight" feeling almost all the time and seems to be suffering from an excess of adrenaline. Also, I suspect, an excess of cortisol as her shape has changed. She had a thyroid growth removed from her neck about two years ago (benign) which didn't compromise the actual thyroid. She has had the 24 hour urine test with high results and has been referred "urgently" by her GP to see an endocrinologist. Unfortunately" urgent" in the area is a minimum of six weeks. She has some stomach discomfort (not pain). She has had problems controlling her body temperature since menopause but I think it is getting worse. I suppose I am worried about something on the adrenal gland. I know you can't possibly diagnose from a distance - but from what I have said - should we maybe try to get the tests done privately - or should we not be so worried?
