I was diagnosed w/ Addison's 3 years ago, and probably lived w/ extreme adrenal insuff. for a few years before that.

... Hey there, didn't see this here, and been just laying around new years.. nothing to celebrate at the moment. Anyways, I don't think I have much of a dry mouth, and I do try to drink plenty of fluids, but I also noticed after Wednesday trying to exercise that now I am still having problems and I am even starting to urinate a lot again and not hold my water. Does that sound... (37 replies)
... Your doctor is a menace to your health. He should know & warn you of the things that can happen quickly & what you should do if you had problems when you tapered. You can't just sit around with crisis symptoms & hope for the best. Do you have a dry mouth, especially at night? Are you drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day & adding salt to most everything. Very... (37 replies)

She has been stress dosed, hospitalized twice since 1/1/16, and... (0 replies)

... Well, I notice when I'm low on cortisol I am fatigued but I can't sleep, when I raised my cortef to 20mg I sleep all the time but wake up tired still usually. Yeah I seem to be gaining weight easily now. I've never been overweight but everyone says it looks like I'm bigger, like I've been working out (my face is just more full and my weight gain is more proportionate than... (18 replies)
... Are you taking thyroid meds? How did the TSH go from 7 to 1-2? It should be under 2. If you aren't feeling better on 20mg versus 12.5mg, you could try Hydrocortisone to see if you feel better on it. Adrenal problems require experimenting to find what works best for you. You have to be the "driver", getting the doc to OK what you want to try. Did you have a cold... (18 replies)

The technical term for my "disease" is Sheehan's Syndrome. I also have... (10 replies)
