HI,

I am wondering if cortef can stimulate my immune system. I've got low cortisol as read by 24 hour urine and a less than stellar results from ACTH stim. I've been VERY ILL/BED BOUnd for 2 years and have bene on cortef )5mg and now onto 10) for about 2 weeks.

Well, i had been feeling a tiny bit better and all of the sudden I feel horrid muscle aches--severe aching, burning, joints flaring up. No fever or other problems..it feels like an immune resposne, as if my immune system has enough horsepower and is waking up...

i've heard cortisol deficiency is ROTTEN for the immune system *as if too much cortisol....now that we're balancing me out i'm wondering if that's why i feel so bad.


THANKS!

cali
