... Hello!! I am a 24 year old female w/Addison's disease since 2014. I now have discovered my progesterone results were 'negative' or nonexistent. I have not had a menstrual cycle in 4 months. My fertility doctor wants to put me on Provera?? I'm waiting to hear back from my endo- has anyone else experienced this?? THANKS (0 replies)
... Good morning. I will try to make this as short as possible. I am a 35 yr old female. I have large cysts in my thyroid, but normal tsh and t4 levels. I have always had odd symptoms that doctors just can't seem to figure out. Fatigue, weight loss, gastroporisis (sp?), gestational diabetes, numbness in my face and arm, low blood pressure (90/70), etc. Also, my Dad has... (0 replies)
... You have no idea how comforting it is to hear that. I have been struggling bad lately. :( I have four kids and a full-time job, so things are stressful, but I keep up with things pretty well. Just today we had two dentist appointments, had to run to take my husband to get lunch, and I just got back from the grocery store... and now I'm working for a bit before going to get my...

... Hey there, I suffer from adrenal insufficiency/addison's and it doesn't appear you have anything to worry about with it being this. You would be incredibly unwell, especially in the fatigue department, this was one of my tell tale signs for my doctor to have me tested. Some days simply having a shower and getting dressed is so exhausting that I physically cannot do anything... (5 replies)
... I suffer from panic disorder, so let me go ahead and throw that out there. I had blood work done about 9 weeks ago (CBC, LMP, lipid panel)... everything came back normal, except my "good" cholesterol was a couple points low. Doctor said it's likely because I smoke, and don't eat the best diet... :/ Then I had vitamin testing two weeks ago (D, B12, ferratin, and folic... (5 replies)
... I have fainted a handful of times since having Addison's but never before that. Only if I'm pretty sick, though. I think it's because our blood pressure tends to tank when something is wrong. (1 replies)
... I know this is an old thread but I thought there is no harm in bumping it up as it might relate to others now also. I have this issue and asked my Doc about it just yesterday as I am a school cleaner of an afternoon and it is full on for 3-3.5hrs and now the weather is getting quite hot here in country Australia I am experiencing the same and I'm worried it's going to end...

... Heya everyone. How are we all? I only found out over the phone yesterday that my stim test has confirmed Addison's Disease and I'm wondering what happens from here? I have an appointment on Tuesday with my Doctor to sort my medication and other tests needed etc. I would love some friends who are going through similar things to talk to if you'd like to have me? Many... (1 replies)
... Hi. Just a question for you, what other reasons could there be for a low cortisol level in a blood test? My endocrinologist rang to say my levels were low and they suspect Addison, I have to go to hospital next week for another test (sycanthen?? Can't remember the word!!) to confirm it. I'm just wondering what other reasons there could be for the low cortisol levels or is it a... (0 replies)
... I posted on the off chance, seeing the date of this thread, but I'm so glad I did now. Chronic illness - it's a bit of a crazy ride, isn't it? That's always good news! Well I'm glad they've identified the reason for you displaying your symptoms, because at the end of the day that's almost half the battle. Definitely for me personally, I struggle with not knowing what's... (5 replies)
... Hello! So glad to here from someone in regards to figuring out this crazy thing called chronic illness. It has been a few months since I have posted to this forum and I'm glad to say that we have found a correct diagnosis for me. Initially we thought Addison's, hence the reason I was here. However, with a few more doctors visits it was determined as pots syndrome. This... (5 replies)
... Hi, I'm still waiting for my Addison's Disease result's. I feel the same way about steroids but it doesn't seem like there are any other options. When I bought up trying to control it with diet, with my doctor, he told me this isn't something you can control with diet. It caught my eye when you mentioned Candida, before I was diagnosed with low cortisol another doctor wanted... (18 replies)
... My doctor's is investigating the possible partial adrenal insufficiency, so I won't know anything for another week at best. But I'm waking up overheated lately, and was wondering if this is one of the symptoms of Adrenal insufficiency? I've heard others talking about and was wondering how often addison's and overheating is found together? (0 replies)
... I'm not sure, but I wanted to reply. Ever since I was diagnosed with Addison's disease, my heart rate has been pretty high, even at rest. It's usually in the upper 90s to 100 bpm. It seems to stay relatively stable when I do normal daily activities, but when I exercise, it quickly goes up to 120-135 bpm (which is well within my maximum heart rate range for moderate exercise)....

... This week I received my blood work results.... It's was diagnosed I have rheumatoid arthritis however the dr said he cannot put me on a low dose prednisone to help with the RA since my cortisol levels were so low! He is testing me for Addison's since I guess you can't take prednisone if you have Addison's! I'm just confused at this point! I have to go back weds for some test... (0 replies)
... I've been severely depressed and apathetic for the last 8 years. I have headaches and strange sensations on my scalp constantly. I also have hyperpigmentation on the knuckles of my big toes, on my upper lip, and on my genital skin. I found Addisons Disease online and decided maybe I have it. I think I'm going to go to the doctor to get my cortisol levels checked this week.... (0 replies)
... I was diagnosed about a month ago with Addison's and secondary adrenal insufficiency. Do any of you have both diseases? Thank you. (0 replies)
... I am a women, 53 years old and I have Addison for two years. I have discovered that my heart rate strongly increases on mild exertion. Normally my resting heart rate is 88 bpm. ... (2 replies)
... Hello, I have been diagnosed with Addison's disease when I was 15 (I am now 22) and a few years later I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. I would say that the replacement therapy is working fairly well for me, even though my mental state is not what it used to be. I generally feel "foggy" and I used to be quite depressed, although I am much better now. I have low energy... (3 replies)
... Hello all. I figured I would post here because Addison's Disease came up in discussion at my doctor's. Starting in October I became severely ill with diarrhea. After fighting it for a week I went to the doctor and found I had severe iron deficiency. I'm a male with a very healthy diet and my ferritin was 2.7 and Iron level 17. This- and the resulting anemia- has been corrected... (0 replies)
