Re: Question
Jan 5, 2007
The lead weights is exactly what they feel like........ I still have that in my arms today and my wrists and ankles still hurt. I feel a lot better today than yesterday. You won't believe how it started. I had three really aggravating things happen to me everything from the valet at the doctors office losing my car for 30 minutes which caused me to be late to the dentist by almost 45minutes. I was rushing a lot because I had increased by 5 mg on the cortef like we said and my dentist is notorious for making you reschedule if you are even 15 minutes late, well they ended up not deading my mouth and it did not seem to hurt so I went ahead and took no more cortef for the day. Needless to say I went from noon to 8 am with no cortef and I could hardly get up without my husband helping me out of bed. I am still really sore in the back and ankles but I don't have that fog sluggish feeling like I did yesterday. I just don't have much energy etc. I assumed that the medication and me getting really upset with the aggravation events of the day and an incident that still irritates me but not as much now got me quite irritated which is unusual for me since I started lexapro a month a go stuff kind of rolls for me now must have played into it but I was not sure. Do you see what I mean about having the symptoms of addisons but no antibodies. I just don't know what to think. I am also craving a lot of salt and I am really hungry which is unusual for me. What does that mean.

I have a call in to the doctor today. The swelling is almost gone I just got so off, and I can't take the weight off. The salt cravings started yesterday and are terrible today. My doctor would be in shock if she knew what all I had eaten today because of being so hungry. I even ate donuts which is a HUGE NO NO for the hypoglacmia and insulin, not to mention the carbs I have had today. I have had a real hard time going to sleep and I was so hungry at 1:30 am I almost ate, but fought off the urge. When this all happened to me several weeks ago with the blood pressure dropping they told me my diet needed to be increased with salt and I needed to be drinking more water. I have not been doing enough water. The florinef has regulated my blood pressure trememdously. I am just not sure how to learn about addisons like I told you before when I go to the doctor the thyroid is the main topic and right now that is fine. I have had thyroid checked two weeks ago pitutary checked had elevated prolactin two years ago take dositnex for that. problems I am having now are cortisol and adreanal related. passed the stim test but failed insulin tolerance test. low growth hormone as well.
I don't know Wanda. It just seems like it is always something.
