... Hi BittyGirl, Most Endos in my part of the country do not think too much of saliva tests. Perhaps yours will, however, the standard of care for most Endocrinologists utilizes blood work to make the determination of whether Addison's Disease is present. In addition, most endos do not recognize "adrenal fatigue." The recognize primary and secondary adrenal failure, not the... (8 replies)
... Valerie, Headaches are a big give away to me that something is off-setting my Addison's. Prediagnosis my headaches were increasing in frequency and becoming more and more intolerable, accompanied by severe nausea. When you have these dizzy spells, it is a good idea to go to an urgent care, as I have seen your husband has suggested in your previous posts. At least there... (3 replies)

... Hi 2Jen! I was diagnosed about the same time as you last year. It has been a challenge for me, but I am finally feeling as if I have a handle on all of this.

As if the cortef helped cure... (37 replies)

... Thanks for the quick reply Wanda I really appreciate it. My endo hasn't really explained anything about it when I get ill or not. He's been getting me better slowly but he isn't much of a talker. Every time we've taken a test on my electrolytes they have been pretty normal (salt is around low normal, sometimes 1-3 points below). My endo comes in on tuesday so I'm going to... (37 replies)
... Since you were diagnosed with adrenal insufficiency & are only taking 12.5mg, you are ""needlessly"" having symptoms. You should be on at least 20mg, taking 10 a.m., 5 noon & 5 about 5pm. You cannot get by on only 12.5 with your symptoms. It will help you all around to take at least the min dose of 20mg. I also wonder about your endo. You will need to be the driving force...
