[QUOTE=PWH1970;3019062]I'm not sure that Lymes Disease is the answer for me, as I have secondary adrenal insufficiency and it's my understanding that Lymes affects the adrenals themselves, no?

I'm taking 15 mg hydrocortisone a day (10 mg upon waking, 5 mg at 4:00). My endocrinologist believes the lowest effective dose is the way to go. If i take more, my eyes get really puffy. Has anybody else experienced that?[/QUOTE]

The adrenal insuf. is secondary if caused by Lyme disease. Lyme has a neg. effect on adrenals and thyroid, and many other body systems, it is called the great imitator, because it imitates so many diseases and syndroms. It is the fasted growing disease in the country, even above HIV. I would still look into it if I were you, it is a very disabling disease, that can destroy every system in your body, and most people who get it are not diag. for years and end up with neurological problems. Babesiosis is a co-infection that causes night sweats and tremors also. I am also taking Cortef and pregneneolone for AI, but my nights sweats went away before I started taking the Cortef, they went away when I started taking Wobenzym N. My endo said this is an excellent enzymatic supp. to take with hormone replacement and Lyme therapy. before taking this I had the night sweats every night horribly. I haven't had them in over a month. You could ask your doc about this supp. There is quite a bit of pos. info online about it helping improve energy levels too. What has your doc said is your main diag. since the adrenal ins. is secondary, what caused it? Sarah:wave:
