Hi, I have had a pituitary prolactinoma for 2 years which is under control with cabergoline. Recently I was on prednisone for a week and it was a runty stopped. Since then, I started to notice joint paint, excessive hunger, increased urination, which has now turned I to low blood pressure, unable to retain any body fluid unless I drink a cup of water and salt. I have to drink gatorade thru the night in order to make it thru without suffering extreme dehydration and low blood pressure with rapid heart rate. I am shaky all the time and have lost 8lbs in 4 weeks. (Was 114 and am now only 106) I have no appetite but am forcing myself to eat. I constantly feel nauseous and have diarrhea that wakes me up first thing in the morning. My ACTH was 8 on a level of 6-50, and my ADH was under 1. They do not seem to think any of this is related to the steroid use. I am desperate for answers. I was a very fit and active person working out 6 days a week and now I have no energy and every muscle in my body hurts. Anybody suffer secondary addisons that could help?
