hi everyone. i am new here. i have a lack of ACTH coming from the pituitary gland. Which does not send the signal to my adrenals to make cortisol. Therefore i cannot handle any stress literaly, thryoid meds don't work because I don't have the cortisol to get the thyroid into my cells etc. They put me on a steroid (hydrocortisone) way back. Well, i did the research and steroids bind to gaba receptors. When the two meet, I cannot even describe what i went through. I take a anti anxiety med. I thought I was going to die. So I absolutely cannot take any steroids in any form at all. Even the people who are trying to come off of benzo's have been hit by a steroid unknowingly, and their symptoms came back. I have done some research on cdp choline and everyone website including pub med claims that this raises ACTH. out of desperation, i ordered it. But have not taken it. I'm wondering if someone can shed some light on my question. if this does raise my ACTH, will it do it naturally, or will the ACTH start causing problems with my receptors again.
i realize that ACTH is a hormone, but when I was injected with it for a test which i failed, it made me feel very strange mixed with the klonopin. it's seems to be all about receptors. I have tried to do research if aceylcholine binds to gaba or steroid receptors and really can't undertand what they are saying. I feel like I'm dying everyday, but it this binds to my receptors again, I probably will die for what it did to me. i stopped the HC, I had to it was driving me out of my mind, and have just been existing. I can't go through another steroid detox. Yes, i literally detoxed from the steroid because it kept clinging on the the receptor. 4 months later it finally let go. i hope someone understands my question.
