Wow, it sounds like you need a new doctor, as this one is not on the ball at all. There is much you need to know about Addison's Disease and how to take care of yourself. I don't know where you live, but can you find a competent endocrinologist? Addison's Disease means your adrenal glands are not functioning, either because they have failed or you have a problem with your pituitary gland. In the latter case, your thyroid and growth hormone can also fail, so you should be tested for all that. If you have Addison's, you will not be able to go off the prednisone for the rest of your life, as your body needs the steroids for replacement of the hormones your adrenals are not producing. There are lots of helpful websites online that will help explain Addison's. Good luck to you.
