    Help with adrenalin, nothing but adrenalin :(

    Hi there
    I know I am recovering from a long bout of virus attacks but I don't think this is related.
    Yesterday I had terrible confusion, mental torture and anxiety, my family were really worried and my bp went dangerously high.
    I managed to do my best controlling it with magnesium, food and diazepam but I woke up with fear in my gut this morning and to be honest with you everything I do seems to generate more adrenalin, no matter if it is pleasant or not.
    Even sitting here is doing a certain amount of putting out adrenalin.
    Anyone have any ideas how I can stop this? Apart from comforting myself with copious amounts of magnesium for my bp and my muscles? Maybe I am on too much thyroid?
    lotsa luv

    Just researching it, think I have found it

    Blood Pressure Problems

    Poor Circulation, Edema The hypothyroid person can have high or low blood pressure, depending on organ effects. If the adrenals are overly active, high blood pressure can result. But as the adrenals become exhausted, the blood pressure will drop below normal. Thyroid hormone will increase circulation and cause a transient increase in blood pressure, but its long-term effect is to improve circulation, lower blood pressure to normal and increase blood glucose to normal. The immediate effect of thyroid hormone is due to a combination of the effects of thyroid hormone in the presence of excess adrenalin. In the presence of thyroid, tissue response to adrenalin is increased.This may result in an initial increase in pulse. This is why you should slowly increase the dose, while at the same time monitor your oral temperature and resting pulse. Hypothyroidism can involve hypoxia (low tissue oxygen) and edema. Patients often complain of cold hands or feet, that their hands and feet “go to sleep” easily, and of poor circulation. Edema is involved in carpal tunnel syndrome, in glaucoma, in which the jelly inside the eye swells and in Grave’s disease in which the muscles behind the eyes swell. All of these problems can be relieved by thyroid-dependent, anti-edema hormones, pregnenolone or progesterone and proper thyroid therapy to correct the imbalance. Specifically, Peat observed a reduction in ocular pressure following a dose of progesterone and the return to normal of the budging eyes in a Grave’s patient within 24 hours following pregnenolone administration.http://webpages.charter.net/jdrzeczycki ... roid2.html

    AWESOME, JUST WHAT I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR
    Decreased Blood Sugar, Increased Adrenalin and Cortisol

    Glucose is required to convert thyroxin (T4) to its active form, triiodothyronine or liothyronine (T3). This occurs mainly in the liver, if glucose is adequate. Why? Glucose activates sulfhydryl enzymes that convert T4 to T3. What happens when T3 is not produced, whatever the cause - stress, radiation, environmental toxins, excess dietary estrogen or liver problems? When T3 decreases, the respiratory or mitochondrial enzymes do not work. T3 is essential for activating the electron transport chain down to the production of oxygen. When T3 is inadequate, sugar (glucose) is burned inefficiently to lactic acid instead of all the way to carbon dioxide. So, the body gets less energy from the same amount of glucose. When the liver runs out of stored sugar (glycogen), it stops converting T4 to T3. The overall effect of this is low blood sugar, leading to [color=#0040FF]INCREASED ADRENALIN to compensate for the deficiency of energy, glucose and oxygen. Low thyroid patients excrete 30-40 times the normal amounts of adrenalin metabolites. At first, adrenalin attempts to mobilize glycogen and stored fat. Then progesterone is converted to cortisol in the adrenal cortex by a complex pathway involving a pituitary hormone (ACTH), which is released in response to adrenalin. Cortisol increases blood sugar via the catabolism of protein. Increased cortisol will decrease adrenalin and lead to a low pulse, common in hypothyroid people. But, if the adrenal cortex becomes exhausted and cannot produce enough cortisol, adrenalin will rise. Adrenalin-dominant people have a high pulse around 120-150 but are still hypothyroid. In either case, proper thyroid therapy will normalize the resting pulse to the optimum, 85 beats per minute. The production of cortisol is a life saving response to stress but in the hypothyroid person, it occurs abnormally in an attempt to keep the blood sugar up. Cortisol, like estrogen, inhibits the thyroid, creating a vicious cycle that can only be broken by proper hormone balancing, such as thyroid therapy, and by opposing cortisone and/or estrogen with progesterone. In addition, excess cortisol leads to hot flushes or night sweats, diabetes, bone loss and glaucoma.

    Re: Help with adrenalin, nothing but adrenalin :(

    cortisol & adrenalin, very hard to balance once balance is out. While I hope I dont fall in either of these categories (Hopefully in the future they all balance out :d ) I am worried about myself.

    There was a time when my BP was 84/46 & I honestly thought this can't be right, may be I am one of those people who have naturally low BP but I was wrong. It was totally low. Now beng on cortef, I get usually 105/60...still not there but getting there.

    I dont know how much adrenalin plays role in all this but is it the same hormone which makes your heart racing...it says fast pulse but sometimes fast pulse doesnt really give you palpitations and with low pulse, there seem to be quite a bit of thumping if you know what I mean.

    Got a few books for this weekend...all about hormones
