... :) Thank you chris. Its nice to see such a fast reply, or any at all for that matter. Yes, yes and yes. Well, I had been taking Armour thyroid b4 finding the adreanal test results.

... Hey everyone, What I am posting for is that I have an adrenal tumor on my right side. I am not sure where it fits in with everything else related with the adrenal glands because the only thing I know at this point is my dhea-s and testostrone are high. The tumor is more than likely functioning which means it will have to come out. I am pretty sure it is not large though... (2 replies)

... brighterday..... Sorry your husband is going through these health problems. I have had addisons since 1998. The thing that will help your husband the most is to find all the addison discusson boards & ask "lots" of questions. The endos do not always give the correct info & treatment. They just do not have the experience needed to advise. Mine started me on the max dose of... (5 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)

... Chris, are you sure about progesterone being higher during menstruation? The reason I'm asking is that I was tested for that, too, and had to take my saliva tests on day 19 of my cycle, because the lab told me that hormones were at their peak during that time. Then I had another blood test done on day 2 of another cycle, and both lab sheets gave much lower ranges for... (6 replies)

... Hi to all, I've had hypertension ( inherited), since I was in my 20's. I only needed to start on BP pills about 10 years ago, when I was in my 40's. Now I find that when my alternative MD added in some super B's, my BP shot up, even when I increased my BP meds. He claims it is due to his super complete formulation of all of the B's that gets the adrenals working, so... (0 replies)

... hey Sunny!! Glad to hear that you're on the path to recovery! I myself am in the same boat as you- adrenal fatigue, not really addisons. I feel like I may be undertreated- I'm being treated by chiro- sports med (non-m.d)- he is treating me with isocort and DHEA- and a pretty strict diet. I haven't felt any better. My biggest complaint is that when I have any stress in my life... (2 replies)
... I used to have a hard time getting out of bed in the morning on the weekends too. I started using progesterone cream several years ago for some pms symptoms. Now I get up much earlier on the weekends and I think that my using (natural) progesterone cream is the reason why. I've read that progesterone can be converted into cortisol. John Lee MD is a big believer in the need for... (6 replies)

Thankfully, my endo has agreed to giving me an ACTH stim test... (1 replies)
