Sounds to me like you have more than an adrenal problem. I don't doubt that you have an adrenal problem but I think that there is more going on. First, I think that you may be on too much hydrocortisone which could be making you gain weight and feel tired. Ask your doctor to take your total daily dose and divide it by six. It's better for you to take a smaller doses more often than take two large doses. Have a compounding pharmacy make your lower dose. If they cant make a compounded dose of hydrocortisone than you may want to switch to an extended release for of cortisone instead. Have your doctor check you for an insufficiency on the internal part of your adrenal gland( the medulla).
Next, have your doctor check you for Hypothyroid. This could be contributing to your weight gain also. Have your doctor check your pituitary hormones to see if your pituitary gland is working correctly. Have your doctor check you for diabetes/hypoglycemia. Have your doctor check your vitamin levels especially vitamin b-12 and vitamin-d and check you to see if your aneimic.
The symptoms that you are having are real. The condition that you have will cause severe depression and fatigue and physical pain. Don't allow other people to prevent you from trusting your instincts. What you have is PMS times a 1000. Give yourself a break. It's your body doing this, not your head. Doctor's do not understand this disease so most of the time you will have to guide them through this process. I think you have Schmidt's Syndrome. Look it up on the web and see if you can relate to it. It's an autoimmune disease which attacks the endocrine organs. It can cause all of your endocrine organs to fail. This disease will cause problems with your immune system. It's also very deadly if it is not caught early. Get to a good endocrinologist quickly. Make sure that he or she has experience with Schmidt's Syndrome.
Also if you are having problems with your adrenal glands you need to wear a medical identification bracelet, you need to put signs on your car and you need to keep emergency, injectible cortisone with you at all times. You also need to keep instant glucose with you at all times. This condition is not in your head. If you have what I think that you have,than you have a very deadly disease. Make doctors listen to you. The good news is that once you learn how to treat it, you can have a normal happy life and most of your endocrine organs can completely recover. Good luck
