... Just wondering if it's a fairly normal part of this condition to feel pretty horrible and lifeless in the morning? Sad to say, but I've gotten "used to" feeling so awful every morning that I've come to accept this as the way it is. It takes me several hours to come to life everyday, and that's only with ample meds, vitamins, sugar, salt water, etc. Can be really rough on... (6 replies)
... Hi Elena, I do remember that I felt better while taking DHEA. Can't exactly put my finger on what it was, but better. Then again, could've been something else as I've tried many different supplements. However, I was only taking 5-10 mg. I'd love to hear how you feel after taking it for awhile. The more I read about it.. seems soooo vitally important - DHEA production is... (13 replies)

... Oh, and DHEA may help also. It is more effective in women than in men. DHEA is a hormone which the adrenals produce more of than any other hormone. But it is not an essential hormone and that is why most Addisonians take take it. ... (2 replies)
... I am another one of those people asking for help with a diagnosis. I have seen two endocrinologists already and they have differing opinions. I am seeing another endo in November and going to NIH in November. I just want to know if anyone else has experienced similar symptoms or if anyone has any suggestions. Thank you in advance!

... I'm a 36yo male and need help understanding the following: Elevated ACTH (400% over top) 2 hours after waking. Blood test repeated several times (not lab error). Declines to high-norm later in the day. So I guess it's not a ACTH producing tumor because it has this rythm? Declining ACTH/Cortisol ratio over several months (needing more ACTH to create cortisol). ... (2 replies)
... Hello everyone, I would greatly appreciate it if someone could help me understand my son's labs. I have adrenal insufficiency, myself--but his labs confused me.

... My Mother has Addisons and it went undiagnosed for so long that she is extremely sick. I appear to be following in her footsteps. I was in a bad car accident and in a lot of pain for a year (migraines for 9 months straight) and it was found I had adrenal gland "fatigue". I realize most Endos HATE that term. I was on cortisteroids for my injuries and to help "support" my... (0 replies)
