... Anderson running all kinds of blood work. They even had me see an OBGYN, who said I was fine. They say I have an adrenal problem, but can't explain why I have high blood pressure.

... @Rumpled - Luckily, I think I have a milder case b/c I'm not "tossing my cookies" with any regularity. I'm able to shop, drive, sit at my desk at work, type, etc. Problem seems mainly to be that it takes tremendous effort to get going and stay going. Once I get to my desk, I'm pretty much fatigued and Zombie-like all day long. I can function, but just barely, and my... (45 replies)

... Chris, Thanks for responding. I am not healthy, I have CFS, Fibromyalgia, IBS, vulvodynia, autonomic dysfunction all at 26 years old. I have been sick for 8 years. So that may have something to do with it. I had an ACTH stim done at 1:30 and it was cortisol 23, went to 40 after an hour. It was only 23 to begin with because the lady couldn't get the IV in my arm and had... (5 replies)
... Hello, I don't think I have Addison's disease but I saw a similar question answered on this forum.I took this test through LEF/Meridaan Valley labs. I had some problems with fatigue and exercise intolerance and was curious if this test would show anything. I'm a 48 year old male. I would appreciate any insight into the results. Thanks, Brian PREGNANEDIOL 218 (70-1050)... (0 replies)
... I have been feeling gradually worse the last 8 years. I have a wide range of symptoms and different issues, but one thing seems to really stand out, and that is that I have more symptoms similar to Addison's than anything else. It may very well not be, but if that is the case it is very very likely endocrine related and similar. I am trying to research information and tests... (3 replies)
... Chali12, your symptoms sound similar to mine especially when you mentioned the part of your BP going high for no apparent reason. I had to purchase my own saliva testing kit. When I took the results to an MD I was finally noticed. ... (17 replies)

... Thanks for the replies. I've been on the phone with doctors telling them that I'm worried about losing my job - some mornings I just can't get out of bed. It's annoying - I mean, I want to be good at my job, I love my job - I don't WANT to be in bed half of the day, I just get sooooooooooo tired. It bugs me because it seems like people's responses are "we're all tired." I get... (7 replies)
... I've read an Endo guide from a reference lab (Q**** Diagnostics), and it looks like for people with healthy adrenals their cortisol goes up even until the 90 min draw. Does the fact that my 90 min reading almost goes back down to my baseline show just how empty my adrenal reserves are? Also, is my ACTH really that high, or is it just saying my Pit knows I need more... (5 replies)
... I do feel horrible. I just wish I could get back on thyroid meds, esp Armour. I did plenty of reading up on secondary AI. I know I don't have complete AI, since I would have failed the stim test. But, there is room for accepting a diagnosis of partial AI, or at the least HPA axis failure, or dysfunction. It is clearly shown in the low normal ACTH (or alost below... (17 replies)
