Addison's Disease Message Board

Addison's Disease Board Index

For the past year I have been having symptoms like: headaches, lightheaded, nausea at times, stomach issues, cant gain muscle and feel real week at times, cant concentrate, muscle aches,agitated, no motivation, chills, oral temp is around 94-95.0 F. My symptoms continue to get worse. My endo has tested my thyroid and everything comes back normal, however l do have a nodule in both lobes. TSH, T4 and T3 levels are all normal. My results for my Adrenal have come back abnormal, my metrapone test shows l am low on cotisol and aldosterone and my testosterone levels are very low. However my stim stest came back normal, so l had an MRI of my pituitary gland done and everything is normal there.
So my doctor put me on a low dose of Cortef and within 2 hours everything got worse, l got a huge headache, real tired and felt real bad. This lasted for about 3 weeks. He also tried florinef and the same thing happened. So my docotor is thinking about trying prednisone, but l am not sure l want to try this drug after what happened with the Cortef, life is very difficult right now and am just not feeling the way l should.
Has anybody had similar reactions to these drugs, or does anybody know if there may be an underlying problem with another organ or system.
