One main difference between the symptoms of adrenal fatigue and hypothyroidism is that when someone has adrenal fatigue, they can’t tolerate cold. They will feel pain or much discomfort with just a little cold feeling. On the other hand, those with hypothyroidism can’t stand the heat, and they will do anything to stay out of the heat.
