... Hi Lisa, I rarely use this message board anymore so forgive me if I am asking questions you've already answered, but I see you mentioned you suffer from POTS. I so rarely see anyone else with the same disorder as me, and was wondering if you could fill me in on your back story with POTS and your symptoms. I've been ill for over 2 years and have been diagnosed with both POTS... (13 replies)
... Hi Lisa! I am relieved that they were able to confirm your diagnosis of Addison's. I have to admit I was worried that POTS wasn't explaining everything you were experiencing. I have heard of quite a few people diagnosed with POTS only to discover later that it was only part of a bigger picture of other hormonal issues. Did they test your aldosterone and renin levels...

... 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. Well, I got a letter yesterday and an appointment today and the final test results came back that it is primary adrenal insufficiency. So now I have 2 MAJOR things to deal with...I am now off work until further notice. I was seen in the ER... (13 replies)

... I take 20 mg. of Cortef per day: 10 in the morning, 5 at 1 p.m. and 5 at 5 p.m. That is plenty for me, so I agree your dose might be too high. You want to aim for the lowest possible dose that controls your Addison's symptoms, as too much has side effects. If you have trouble sleeping, I would say you are on too much. You should discuss with your doctor the possibility of... (5 replies)
... Hi Nebraska Lady! I'm happy the cortef is working better for you. It seems to be the drug of choice in most cases because it is the most similar to what your own body makes. One thing to ask your doctor about is the dose he has you on. I think the standard dose to match what your body would make is 20mg of cortef per day. The less you take that still lets you feel...

... to account, i was fine. Although i had that blood test this past late summer, so things could have changed. Hmm, he also told me not to take calcium, because the prednisone would bind with it, and not work as well.

... I really don't have answers, but I have the same problem. My right eye really droops when I have a bad day. I've had Graves disease, and had most of my thyroid removed years ago. But when I really noticed the eye was a few years before my Addison's crisis. When they worked on the adrenal problem and put me on Prednisone, the eye really improved, even though at that time...

... What is the difference between Addison's and Congenital adrenal hyperplasia? I am currently undergoing tests and heard CAH mentioned a few times but I have the symptoms of Adddison's. I was also told by my doctor to wear a medical alert tag that says, "Adrenal Insufficiency, on Prednisone". Does this mean I have Addison's? I am awaiting test results right now so I will be...

... I hit my head last July and am still dealing with it. While on the prednisone it was getting better, they took me off and I ended up right back to the beginning in pain level. Now I have been having a very hard time getting any better. ... (4 replies)
... Yea! How brave of you to stand up to your doctor on this one. It took courage and it was definitely the right choice. I am so happy that you will be supervised for this test. It can be a very accurate way to get more information when it is performed correctly (in the hospital!). Take care of yourself while off the prednisone. And when you feel up to it, let us know...

... Well, I am trying a new doctor since I am convinced this one doesn't know anything about Addison's. I had a crisis last summer - classic and bad. My skin had been getting really dark over the last few years. When I started getting sick, I was told it was a virus and sent home. By the time I took the ambulance ride to the hospital they had to use a second blood pressure... (5 replies)
