Hyposdrenalism
May 11, 2007
Dear all,

i had a short synathen test which indicated i had hypoadrenalism. i think i had been in a crisis because i kept having blackouts seizures hypos faints. went to hospital they gave me three iv drips . of hc saline and floucortisone. then the diabetes specislists! ha reduced dose next day to 20 mg i started feeling lousy again. i have had medical health problems for a long time and had to keep coming to hospital she just didn't believe me.my adrenal glands should make it up to 500 mine only reached 200. however my morning cortisol was ok. stilll waiting an acth test. i still didn't feel well coming out of hospital but was mega stressed in there. ok now get this i have been sent home with three days to ween off hcortisone. they said the steriod for asthma may have induced it i had two oral pred at ten mil!!!!! and i have been having these symptons for ages also pain in my left side above my adrenal gland. i think i still may have an infection thats been brewing it was a gut infection. i said to them so what am i meant to do when i come of the hc and get bad again luckily i knicked the supply for more from my medical cabinet. if i have an adrenal crash again i cant go back to her i was really confused and passing out when getting my symptons but was looked at like i was mad. should i come of the hc or give it a bit of time to feel better. im getting a second opinion. i am at my wits end. i have only been on meds for a week. the diabetes doctor discharged me at first telling me i had to be on it for life and now is taking me off it. im also wondering whether i have got cushings disease. i had low blood pressure before the hc.

someone please help
