Addison's Disease
Jun 20, 2013
I really need some help. My right adrenal gland was removed in 2006, the left one never started working again. I have been on Cortef for years now and when my blood work was done my ACTH was really up and cortisol was within normal range. My doctor wants to get a saliva cortisol but he wants me off the Cortef for 2 weeks before this test. I stopped taking it Tuesday and have since then been nauseous, my muscles, joints hurt, vision is cloudy, head is pounding and am having abdominal pain. I don't know what to do, it scares me, but I also don't feel that my doctor will be willing to tell me to go back on my Cortef. Someone please help me understand if they have been through this or if they have any advice.
