Sudden low cortisol reaction?

    Ask Jack:

    I had an odd experience recently. I used to be an avid cyclist (pre-hypothyroid and adrenal fatigue) but I've been mostly off the bike or riding very easy for months. On Sunday, it was such a beautiful day I went out for about an hour and a half ride and took it very easy, avoided big hills, etc. Shortly after I got home, I started feeling bad. I laid down on the floor for half an hour, feeling nauseated and with a headache. Then I got chills to the point of goose bumps. I had a light lunch and finally felt a little better, but even an hour later, my heart rate was quite high (95, when 60-ish is normal).

    Does this sound like a low cortisol reaction? I'm taking it as a sign to stay off the bike for a while longer :(.

    sounds like a gut flora/progesterone problem......BG 9 might open your eyes.
