... Lisa, I really feel for you, and am praying for you. How hard it must be, especially since you have children. I am scheduled to get tests TOMORROW finally, for adrenal insufficiency. I was supposed to get them last week, but everything with the doctors is taking longer than expected. What scares me about your story is that my problems actually started with a supposed...

... Hey Lisa, I am reading your story and the thought that comes to mind is...has anyone worked you up for a pheochromocytoma or carcinoid? They can present with orthostatic hypotension (a sort of POTS, I think), chest pain, flushing, etc. Do a search and read about the symptoms and see if any of them fit. Your adrenals are doing funky things to you-it is just a question of... (13 replies)
... Amazing....I am just not even sure what to say. When I was in the hospital the dr said that the metryopone test came back normal.

I am on 5 mg prednisone/day, 1 grain armour thyroid/day, and about 25 mg DHEA/day. 17 years ago, my doctor told me that I was one step above addison's... (1 replies)
... Hey there Kris. Thanks for the reply. I realise these things about 'too much steroid'. However, my body rips through the HC SO fast, that I get low cortisol symptoms all the time, even on my high dose! I do have slight cushings symptoms, a little puffiness around the face, and some stomach weight gain, but i was very gaunt before, very underweight.. and now I just look... (20 replies)

I get the feeling it isn't the HC that isn't working for you,... (20 replies)
